Many women experience breastfeeding problems in the early days after having a baby. As a Breastfeeding Counselor you can learn how to support them and overcome those difficulties, helping them to enjoy their baby and the special relationship that breastfeeding offers.

Breastfeeding Counselors have the opportunity to make a real difference to the families they work with. You will be able to help mothers overcome breastfeeding difficulties, building a close relationship with the women you are working with, and knowing that in your support, you can help a mother and baby to gain the benefits of breastfeeding.

As with our other courses, you can have the flexibility and convenience of being able to study from the comfort of your own home. You can study a Childbirth International course in any country. Childbirth International has students in 100 countries across the world and in all 50 US states!

"I have become much more aware of myself, and of others, and how best to communicate. I have a long way to go, but I feel I have made great strides and look forward to re-reading my communication manual often. My trainer was incredibly knowledgeable and really helped me through my communication assignment. She helped me see how much deeper I could go and helped me get there. Had it not been for this incredibly deep and thorough feedback, I would not have learned nearly as much. You are an awesome team and I am VERY happy that I chose this program!" Rachel, Utah, USA
