Learn about our new IBCLC Mentorship Program!

The Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition is so excited to announce the launch of our new IBCLC mentorship program! 

The goal of the IBCLC Mentorship Program is to increase the number of IBCLCs of color and IBCLCs in rural areas with little to no access to skilled IBCLC support. We aim to provide easy to understand information and mentoring to help you navigate the certification process. 

Scholarships may be available in the future (by application), but all information and meetings are FREE!

In November 2022 our program launches with an easy to read and understand

If you are interested in learning more about how to become an IBCLC, please join our IBCLC mentors: Ann Seacrest, RN, IBCLC and Melanie Horstman, IBCLC, RLC, CPST for monthly Zoom meetings! 

Our mentors will be answering your questions in a group format, helping to connect you with resources to complete your IBCLC, and letting you know about updates about the program - such as scholarships!


Upcoming meeting times:

Thursday November 10th 6-7pm CST

December - weekday daytime TBD

January - weekend time TBD

Have questions about the meetings or your particular situation? Please email and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

Are you an IBCLC and want to work with the coalition on training future IBCLCs? Please reach out to our email! Our program can only help students if we have IBCLCs willing to train!
