Many women experience breastfeeding problems in the early days after having a baby. As a Breastfeeding Counselor you can learn how to support them and overcome those difficulties, helping them to enjoy their baby and the special relationship that breastfeeding offers.
Breastfeeding Counselors have the opportunity to make a real difference to the families they work with. You will be able to help mothers overcome breastfeeding difficulties, building a close relationship with the women you are working with, and knowing that in your support, you can help a mother and baby to gain the benefits of breastfeeding. Studying with Childbirth International means you will have the flexibility and convenience of being able to study from the comfort of your own home.

“I really enjoyed the course materials…I felt like my knowledge base grew significantly with each module. My trainer was prompt in giving feedback, and the feedback was always thoughtful and thought-provoking. I appreciated her positive and encouraging nature. Thank you so much for all the care and work you put into making Childbirth International such a nurturing and effective organization. This course has been awesome and I feel like I’ve grown a lot in the last year and a half.” – Meredith, ON Canada
