IBCLCs are members of the allied healthcare profession, so it is appropriate for them to charge for the time they spend in a lactation consultation. The fees may be covered by your health insurance or health ministry program, but you will have to ask your IBCLC. ILCA provides this directory as a service to the public by providing a list of names of ILCA members (who are IBCLCs) in your area and who may be available for a consultation. ILCA does not set fees, nor engage in any dispute resolution involving individual families and lactation consultants. ILCA does not endorse the services or products of any individual IBCLC.
Please contact listed IBCLCs to learn more about services offered, fees, and medical coverage arrangements (vary by provider and country).
