LACTATION LOVE + LEARNING
Lactation Love + Learning is a professional support and case study group for IBCLCs and their Associates/Students. We gather for peer support, connection, networking as well as enriching our practices with learning opportunities provided by your colleagues. Each session will include a guest speaker, a case study or a "hot topic"- as well as time to get to know your fellow NJ IBCLCs and IBCLC associates/students.
All fees go to supporting the PERINATAL HEALTH EQUITY INITIATIVE (PHEI)- closing the gap in racial inequities for NJ's black mothers and babies in pregnancy and postpartum. Funds pay for speakers, space rental, and other expenses. Remaining proceeds all go to PHEI.

Peer mentorship exists to fill the gap that naturally arises between passing the board exams and the experience that comes from being in practice for any extended period of time. We all find we need someone to review cases with from time to time for perspective, additional ideas or solutions that come from experience or simply validation that things are going as well as they can. Peer mentorship is available as an individual session or in packages. I want you to feel supported and to learn to trust your clinical judgements and intuition. Individual sessions are currently $275 for 60 minutes.
At Milkwell® we believe in supporting the next generation of lactation consultants. When we have a comfortable environment that nurtures our skills and gifts, we are open and receptive to learning. Clinical supervision is available for lactation professionals who desire to sit the board exam by IBLCE. This opportunity allows you to move through the phases of supervision while addressing the Clinical Competencies and items from Detailed Content Outline preparing you to sit the exam. You will observe consultations run by an experienced IBCLC, work with families together with your preceptor learning hands on skills, deepen your counseling skills and gain valuable face to face time with families running consults and creating care plans on your own with your preceptor either at your side or on site for support when needed. Learning to take a history, counseling towards client goals, documentation, creation of care plans and making referrals are all covered.
All 95 lactation specific hours must be completed prior to commencing supervision. Space is limited. Fees apply. Please complete the form below to apply.
