US/Eastern

The Certified Lactation Counselor®, (CLC) certification is the premier National Certification in Lactation Management for the United States. CLC certification holders have demonstrated competence in the lactation skills, knowledge and attitudes that are essential to helping women in the United States and have agreed to comply withThe Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice code of ethics. The Lactation Counselor Training course is recognized by ANCC as a Nursing Skills Competency Program.

CLC certification means that a person has received training and competency verification in breastfeeding and human lactation support including assessing the latching and feeding process, providing corrective interventions, counseling mothers, understanding and applying knowledge of milk production including in special circumstances and other commonly encountered situations. All of this give CLCs a strong foundation with which to help moms and babies.
The CLC certification is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and certifies that the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice meets the ANSI accreditation program requirements and those set forth in ANSI/ISOIEC 17024:2003 General requirements for bodies operating certification systems of persons for Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC).
CLCs are members of the health care team who can provide knowledge and counseling about optimal and sub-optimal breastfeeding. CLCs understand that breastfeeding decisions are made by the mother, who may have values and goals different from the counselor. A counseling approach is used to gather information and provide appropriate support to the mother and her family. CLCs work as part of the health care team, assuring appropriate referrals and recommendations.
CLCs provide breastfeeding counseling and lactation management in:
• Maternity units in hospitals and birth centers.
• Neonatal intensive care units and special care nurseries.
• Outpatient lactation clinics.
• WIC programs.
• Visiting nurse programs.
• Maternal and child health services at the state, county and local level.
• Parenting centers, including military family support centers.
• Physician and midwife offices.

Research has shown that the education required of CLCs prior to certification is associated with improved breastfeeding outcomes.
Working in a variety of settings, including hospitals, WIC agencies, health departments, clinics, health care provider offices, and private practice, nationally certified CLCs are key to the US strategy of increasing breastfeeding rates in our communities, advocating for positive change in societies attitudes and behavior regarding breastfeeding, teaching breastfeeding classes, and assisting mothers to optimally breastfeed.
This research and competency based lactation management training provides
• Comprehensive breastfeeding management training
• Practical skills that will make you more effective in your job
• Time-saving hospital strategies that make breastfeeding a success
• Strategies and tips for special circumstances - premies, Down Syndrome, newborns affected by medications, and more
• How to talk to mothers in a way that encourages them to choose breastfeeding
• Public Health/WIC strategies that work to increase breastfeeding success

This comprehensive, evidence-based, breastfeeding management course includes practical skills, theoretical foundations and competency verification. Technical issues are explored within the context of counseling the mother in the hospital and in public health and community settings. This course prepares participants for professional work helping mothers and babies: this program trains participants how to gain insight into clients' problems, with a strong focus on counseling skills.
