What the Books Don't Teach You: Tips and Tricks for the Lactation Professional

Kay Hoover became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 1985. She sat for the very first exam and has taken the exam 4 times. She has worked as a private practice lactation consultant, a hospital lactation consultant at 5 different hospitals, the lactation consultant for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, for The Center for Childhood Obesity Research at The Pennsylvania State University, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. She currently is retired. She has presented workshops at national and international conferences and is a co-author of The Breastfeeding Atlas.

Objective 1: Discuss types of descriptive words that might be helpful to our clients

Objective 2: List 3 new ideas about using lactation related equipment

Objective 3: Explain teaching strategies that are applicable to their work setting

Objective 4: Describe examples of strategies that have been learned through experience


Book and/or online learning is an important part of the education of an IBCLC, but it won’t teach you everything you need to know. Some things can only be learned through experience and sometimes parents and babies are our best teachers. In celebration of IBCLC Day 2021, this presentation will share tips and tricks for the lactation professional that are based in evidence but learned through many years of experience caring for families. Learn more about descriptive language that resonates with parents and helps them feel understood, new ideas about using lactation related equipment such as pumps and supplementers, teaching strategies and much more.

How much time do I have to view the presentations?

  • The viewing time will be specified for each product. When you purchase multiple items in your cart, the viewing time becomes CUMULATIVE. Ex. Lecture 1= 2 weeks and Lecture Pack 2 = 4 Weeks, you will have a total of 6 weeks viewing time for ALL the presentations made in that purchase.
  • Time for viewing the talks begins once you purchase the product. For Live Webinars & Symposiums, the viewing period begins from when the live event takes place. Presentations can be accessed 24/7 and can be viewed as many times as you like during the viewing period.

What are bundled lectures?

  • Presentations may be available individually or via a bundled package. Bundled lectures are a set of lectures that have been put together based on a specific category or topic. Some lectures will be available in both individual and lecture form, whereas others will be available only via a bundled lecture pack.

Will there be Handouts?

  • YES! Each lecture comes with a PDF handout provided by the Speaker.

Some lectures include a Q&A, what does that mean?

  • During our online conferences, presentations that occur live are also followed by a short 15 minute Question & Answer Session. The Speaker addresses questions that were posted by Delegates during the presentation. We include the recording of these Q&A Sessions as a bonus for you.
