Bailey receives recertification as lactation consultant
Doraine Bailey, our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), has recertified her credential. All IBCLC are required to have 75 hours of continuing education every 5 years to recertify. Some of the continuing education topics included breastfeeding practices among Jewish and Muslim mothers; human milk banking; breastfeeding practices among LGBTQ families; infant gut microbiome; diagnoses for breastfeeding-related pain; implications of insulin dysregulation and diabetes for breastfeeding mothers; infant sleep, gut emptying and breastfeeding frequency; hypoplastic breast syndrome; opioids and drug-dependent women; and managing tethered oral tissues.
Doraine now begins her 16th year as an IBCLC with the health department, part of her 27 years with the agency.
