Greetings. My name is Barbara L. Philipp, MD. I am a Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine, in Boston, MA, USA, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and a Fellow of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. I believe that we no longer need to convince new mothers about breastfeeding - they know. Now we need all hands on deck to support them, whether it be more Lactation Consultants or more knowledgeable doctors and nurses and citizens.
I found some funders who agree with this sentiment and are generously supporting the start of The Lactation College. Thanks to them, the College is free!
We are now in our second semester. The first semester course - on topics about lactation, breastfeeding and breast milk - ran from January 1, 2021 until April 30, 2021. All posts for that semester were in English. The second semester is running from June 1, 2021 until September 15, 2021. All posts are in English AND SPANISH!! Bueno!! Classes, in the form of newsletters, are posted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The goal is to present information in a concise and clear way to help candidates pass the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) examination. Any others who are interested in learning more about lactation, breastfeeding and breast milk are also welcome to join. Subscribe to get full access to the class-of-the-day newsletter. Email addresses are not shared. As I mentioned, the course is free.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
