Lactation Consultation

At UI Health

Lactation consulting services are a frequently requested option for UI Health Two-Gen Clinic patients and are offered by Certified Lactation Specialists.

At Your Organization

Personnel in your organization may already be available to provide lactation services for patients. However, if no one is currently able to provide these services, there are multiple pathways to be able to provide lactation support and services including breastfeeding peer counselors, Certified Lactation Counselors or Specialists, and International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). Depending on the personnel type (which may be current staff or new hires), there are different time commitments and requirements for training.


Who in your organization currently provides lactation resources or support for breastfeeding mothers? Who might be able to provide ongoing lactation services for patients? If no one can provide such services, who might be trained for this role?

If lactation consultation or services cannot be provided directly by your healthcare organization, what community-based lactation support resources are available? Is a partnership possible with these community-based organizations?

What is the connection of your organization to the WIC sites in your community? Are you able to partner with WIC for lactation consultation for your patients?
