Re: lactation consultant vs counselor

Hm, the IBCLC is more than just time and a degree, unfortunately. There are service/health hours involved -- either mega mega volunteer (I think it is the equiv of 10 years as a LLL leader) or being a doctor or something of the like. Maybe nursing counts?

It is really too bad -- something I'd be very interested in as well.

I'd imagine one of those counselor type certifications would allow you to work in a lesser capacity, though, which isn't ideal but would be much much easier!
