Lactation Consultants

Lactation Consultant Directory

keep-calm-and-call-an-ibclcLactation consultants are the backbone of breastfeeding support. They are knowledgeable, experienced, and empathetic toward the new mother’s needs. A good lactation consultant is worth her weight in gold. This listing of IBCLC lactation consultants that serve the Chicagoland area is not an endorsement of any particular professional; it is simply a resource directory. Be sure to do your homework and interview before you hire!  All of these IBCLCs will provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. We also maintain a directory of weekly Drop-In Clinics & Outpatient Clinics in the Chicagoland area.  Not in the Chicagoland area?
