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.
