Physicians, physician-assistants, nurse practitioners, midwives and dentists who care for breastfeeding dyads often recognize the need for further training in breastfeeding medicine.
IABLE has Several Educational Offerings for Physicians & Other Providers
1) The One Day Primary Care Breastfeeding Medicine Basics for Healthcare Providers - Live or Online
IABLE’s one-day basic breastfeeding training for providers (curriculum here) instructs participants on prenatal breastfeeding education, intrapartum and early postpartum support, and differential diagnosis and management of the most common breastfeeding problems encountered by primary care providers. These problems include evaluation and management of low milk supply, breast/nipple pain, the use of medications during breastfeeding including contraception, complications in the early postpartum period, and breast pump counseling.This course can be scheduled upon request - either live or online.
We are considering conducting this course in the fall of 2021. We will announce it in our newsletter.

This is the one and only comprehensive breastfeeding medicine course geared towards physicians and other providers who want to elevate their support for breastfeeding dyads in their office, and/or who are developing the knowledge and skills to practice breastfeeding medicine as a subspecialty. This event is usually held in September.
