Lactation Consultants

It is highly recommended that the mother contact an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) who has experience with adoptive breastfeeding or who is at least open minded about the protocols.

Find an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in your area.

If for some reason you are unable to find a board certified lactation consultant you can try a La Leche leader through

La Leche Telephone: 1-800-La Leche (1-800-525-3243)

La Leche representatives have a wide variety of products available. Most LLL leaders are familiar with the concept of induced lactation but do not usually have the experience with these protocols. Nor do most LLL leaders feel that following a mother for induced lactation is their function except in a supportive role. However, occasionally, a very experienced leader has acquired the clinical experience over years of service to her community. It is important to ask about her clinical experience. Also, LLL leaders may be able to guide a mother to an IBCLC.
