We are proud to share the new publication from the National WIC Association encouraging IBCLC coverage and availability for the WIC population. This document is referenced and supports the addition of IBCLCs to ensure the highest level of lactation expertise will be accessible to all mothers participating in the WIC program. This clear explanation of the importance of the IBCLC translates to increased recognition of the IBCLC as the expert in lactation care, improved employment opportunities for IBCLCs, and increased interest in pursuing the IBCLC credential.
As lactation professionals, we urge you to share this document widely. This is a great opportunity to advocate for your profession!
