International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) services are provided prenatally and while the infant is breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is encouraged because of its benefits to the infant, mother and society. Infants who are breastfed are less likely to develop health-related complications and require fewer hospitalizations.
