Tuition Waiver Program

After graduating all our cohorts, Birthingway’s Lactation Consultation Program closed in February 2019. Please reference this section of the website for historical information only.

Birthingway is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive learning environment. We also seek to cultivate a diverse body of care providers in an effort to address healthcare disparities for historically and currently low-resourced or marginalized communities.

Birthingway offers a tuition waiver to address barriers to entry in the lactation consultation profession for people who identify as a member of a group or community that is underrepresented in this field. These groups include, but are not limited to, People of Color, non-native English speakers, immigrants, and LGBTQ people. Individuals with a lived experience of drug addiction, homelessness, or incarceration may also meet this criteria.

Tuition waiver applications will become available leading up to the admission of a new Lactation Consultation Program cohort.

If you have any questions about the tuition waiver, please contact Birthingway’s Lactation Program Coordinator.
