Its finally here: Details on Advanced Lactation Series from Bakersfield Breastfeeds!
Our final educational offering of 2013 is open for Registration!
The response to our 2013 courses has been nothing short of amazing! We have trained nearly 50 breastfeeding supporters already this year, making a huge impact on the quality of available breastfeeding support in Kern and Tulare Counties. Throughout the year we have spoken to many lactation professionals, doulas, midwives, Registered Nurses, physicians, and dietitians who have requested that we make more options available. Its time for the Advanced Lactation Series! This series has been custom designed to work as a full 50 L-CERP series for those preparing for the IBLCE exam, OR as a menu of day-long topics.

Each day of training has been created with 1 hour of Communication and Counseling Skills built in to the agenda.

Rather, they are intended to further the education of breastfeeding supporters in a flexible, customized way which best fits their own personal lactation education needs. L-CERPs and E-CERPs have been applied for from IBLCE. Our IBLCE Provider Number can be provided upon request. *You may opt to register and pay for Day I with CERPs only and then decide if you want to commit to the entire series.
