BreastEd Lactation Studies Series (10)


The BreastEd series is comprised of 10 unique courses, each dealing with a specific area or period of relevance to the breastfeeding mother and her infant. Together these courses provide a comprehensive study program in lactation and breastfeeding.

The aim of this program is to provide students with a comprehensive direction of study that will prepare them for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners' (IBLCE) examination, while giving them the knowledge and confidence to become competent professionals in the field of lactation.
By developing and delivering this program online, a secondary aim is to provide a high quality study program accessible to students who, by preference or necessity, find the unlimited 12-month access to course content, tutoring and peer support best suits their needs.

The BreastEd series has been approved by the Lactation Education Accreditation and Approval Review Committee (LEAARC), which recognizes comprehensiveness and quality in lactation programs, and is the standard recommended for all programs of study for future Lactation Consultants.

The BreastEd series meets and exceeds the lactation-specific education prerequisite for those students preparing for the IBLCE examination to become a Lactation Consultant.

Enroll into the BreastEd Series in one transaction and have access to the whole program and tutors for a full 12 months. Alternatively, each course may be enrolled into individually for a one-month per course enrollment period, cumulative as you add each new course.
