Information for Mothers, Lactation Consultants, Professionals and Government

Breastfeeding can be highly beneficial for mothers and babies, provided the right elements of support are in place.

The resources created by LCANZ are provided to help mothers with their breastfeeding experience. We also have extensive information for Australian and New Zealand-based lactation consultants, Government representatives and medical professionals.

You’ll find information on contacting a lactation consultant, becoming one and renewing your certification. There are also extensive resources to help medical professionals support their breastfeeding clients.

The information is subject to regular review by the LCANZ Board of Directors, and inclusions do not necessarily hold the full endorsement of LCANZ.

If the information you are looking for is not available on this website, reach out to us online or over the phone.
