This course is developed and presented by the Texas WIC Program. We provides breastfeeding courses to prepare health-care providers to support breastfeeding women and infants. We believe that a positive, proactive approach to breastfeeding promotion and support is achieved through team effort and encourages all health-care workers who work with breastfeeding women and infants to attend.

This course is specifically designed for health professionals who counsel breastfeeding mothers and would like to improve problem-solving skills. The class emphasizes critical thinking skills and reinforces concepts learned in the Principles of Lactation Management (POLM) course.

This is an intermediate level course and is activity oriented. Small groups will work through case studies and rotate through skills activities. Be prepared to join the discussions and share your ideas with others in your group. While anyone may attend, this class is most suitable for WIC Breastfeeding Coordinators, labor and delivery nurses, postpartum nurses, home visiting nurses and those striving to sit for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam.

Registration fee includes course materials, continuing education contact hours, light breakfast and lunch.

Designed for aspiring and recertifying IBCLCs, this one-day seminar will help you prepare for the IBLCE Exam and sharpen your clinical expertise.

Approximately half of the questions on the IBLCE Exam are based on images. In this interactive seminar you will learn how to decode pertinent visual information and accurately recognize conditions that may appear on the exam or in your practice. You will review over 200 pictures of breastfeeding dyads to sharpen your observation skills and learn how those images might be used to construct exam questions and how to accurately interpret the information presented to select the correct answer. Taught by popular author and educator, Marie Biancuzzo RN MS CCL IBCLC.
