World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated from August 1 – 7 in many countries of the world. We celebrated again this year by offering to help IBCLCs, CLCs, aspiring lactation consultants, midwives, and other health professionals further their education with a number of full and half scholarships for our Breastfeeding in a changing world conference which starts online on September 15, 2017. This year we are excited to announce that with the generous assistance of Alive & Thrive, we have awarded a record number of scholarships.
