Breastfeeding Educator General Information:
Welcome to our program information page. We are not going to be using the words "Lactation Educator" because this is trademarked. So, when you are finished you will receive a certificate stating: "Star of the Sea Certified Breastfeeding Educator" as your title.
Our program is a pilot program. There will be several modules. We are estimating between 8-10 modules.
The course will consist of modules to read through; inside the modules we will have video links that you will need to review for each modle. You will go through a few books as well for the course. (See book list next column). There will be other certification requirements (last column over).
What's a pilot program? If you start when we first roll out this course; you will be given a module a month to work on until finished with all modules. Note: We may have some available sooner.
Usually, books are avialable on Amazon or Ebay. Please also note edition/author/etc. Let us know i f you have a question.
We will have assignments, quizzes, and pre/post tests in the modules. The pre/post tests will be from some of the books. We will have module projects and saints of the module.
B.L.O.O.M. option: Bettering Lives of Outstanding Moms is a training program to support mothers during pregnancy and/or postpartum. We include the pregnancy version in our Childbirth Educator course; we have an opt-in to include our postpartum version in the Lactation/Breastfeeding course.
