As you consider Lactation Consultation as a profession, it is important to know which pathway you should take to sit for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners certification examination:
Pathway 1 is intended for individuals who are recognized healthcare professionals and/or recognized Mother Support Counselors.
Pathway 2 is intended for graduates of recognized academic programs, including Birthingway’s Associate of Science in Lactation Consultation Program.
Pathway 3 is intended for candidates who have completed a mentored apprenticeship.
Birthingway does not offer online courses.
