Our lactation consultants hold 2 key certifications to ensure your time working with us is a gentle, supportive and empowering experience.
The Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) credential identifies a specialist in lactation counseling who has successfully passed an examination based on identified work-place competencies derived from role delineation studies. This is the national certifying entity for all CLC education programs.
The CLC credential signifies that the holder has demonstrated the necessary skills, knowledge, and attitudes to provide breastfeeding counseling and management support to families who are thinking about breastfeeding or who have questions or problems during the course of breastfeeding/lactation. CLCs are dedicated to the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding and human lactation in their work to prevent and solve breastfeeding problems. They understand that breastfeeding works best when it is the cultural norm and when the provider of lactation support and services is culturally competent.
BIRTH / LABOR SUPPORT
Each team member is trained and certified as a labor doula. Women across the globe appreciate and value the experience of having a doula - a knowledgeable, experienced companion - who stays with them through labor, birth and beyond. Birth doulas offer emotional support, encouragement and wisdom throughout labor and birth.
