      Why become a certified lactation educator?

      Certified Lactation Educators (CLEs) provide evidence based information to the community, families and professionals to encourage an increase in breastfeeding initiation, duration and support. CLEs are found teaching community and hospital based breastfeeding classes, as peer breastfeeding counselors in hospital and public health setting, facilitation support groups, running pump rental stations and providing phone support.
