    Increasing Diversity in the Profession

    In order to cultivate a community of diverse professional lactation supporters, the Maryland Breastfeeding Coalition is raising funds for scholarships for people of color in our state. The scholarship would cover tuition for a 90-hour Lactation Consultant Training Program OR a Clinical Internship through Lactation Education Resources, plus payment of IBCLC exam fee and mentoring by an IBCLC-member of MBC. Our goal is to raise $2300, which would cover the annual costs of two persons. Please click here to read more about the scholarship, including eligibility and application. Please click here to donate to the scholarship fund. If you are a lactation consultant, and wish to donate in the name of someone who mentored you through your own training, please include their name and we will recognize them on as a “Mentor Champion” on our website.
