What is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant? Being certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant is the highest level and most widely recognized certification for lactation consultants. IBCLC’s have studied child development, nutrition, anatomy, psychology, sociology and counseling and have at least 45 hours of college credits in lactation education.
