Why become a certified lactation educator?
Certified Lactation Educators™ (CLE®s) provide evidence based information to the community, families and professionals to encourage an increase in breastfeeding initiation, duration and support. CLE®s 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.

The CAPPA CLE® does not prescribe, treat, nor diagnose breastfeeding related conditions and is trained to refer clients facing circumstances that require this degree of intervention to a qualified professional.
