Hi everyone,
If this has been answered, and I'm just missing it, just a point in the right direction would be helpful

How would one go about becoming a lactation consultant?

Have been nursing (on & off) for 10 yrs, LLL applicant 3 yrs ago but did not complete. I would ultimately like to become a doula and LC, but with a very LO taking each part one bit at a time. Any advice/help much appreciated!

If you want to be a postpartum doula or labor doula the five day course is suitable to fulfill the needed requirement when getting certified . Work on the doula certification and that will require you take a course. You will not be qualified to be a LC.

If you want to be "LC" that is a board certification from IBLCE you're considered an allied health professional. That you need a comprehensive course of study and hands on clinical experience.

BTW/ they do not require or ask about your personal experiece breasfeeding to be a doula or a IBLCE.
