What is a BRC Community Counselor?
Our community counselors are mothers who have nursed their own babies and have taken an extensive training class to qualify them to counsel mothers over the phone or by email. Every client that walks through our doors has the opportunity to “sign up” for a community counselor. Our Community Counselors can help ensure that mothers have support from the time they walk through our doors until they’re ready to wean! Email Laura at Laura@BRC4babies.com if you want your own Community Counselor.
How Do I Become a Community Counselor?
Area moms, who have nursed (or pumped for) their own babies for at least 6 months and have a passion to help other families succeed in their breastfeeding journey, are welcome to sign up for our Counselor Training Class. These classes will be offered twice a year, and include a rigorous curriculum taught by our very own IBCLCs. Once the course is completed, you will receive your certificate and be added to the list of available counselors. The BRC requires child abuse clearances and HIPPA training for all of our active Community Counselors.
