LUNCH AND LEARN OPTIONS AT YOUR OFFICE:
One of our IBCLCs will come to your office and give an hour presentation on a breastfeeding topic. You supply the lunch to your staff and the education is free!
Our topics include but are not limited to:
- Supplementation: When Why and How Much?
- Starting Solids – The Baby Led Weaning Approach (What’s that all about?)
- What are Lactation Consultants talking about? – If you think we advise too much pumping and too many tongue ties, then this talk may be good for your office. Includes case studies!
- GERD vs. Oversupply – How do you tell the difference?
- Thrush and Vasospasm – Same symptoms….different solutions!
Email Colette to schedule a session! Colette@BRC4babies.com

Quotes from some of our BRC interns ….
Colette, You are an inspiration to me and many others. You are absolutely needed in the lactation community with your fresh perspective and easy-going nature. Furthermore, without you, I wouldn’t even be close to realizing my dreams. Thanks for believing in me!”
– J.M. Sellersville, PA
I can’t begin to thank you enough for all you’ve taught me this past year. When the BRC offered me the internship, I really felt like I’d landed the best placement possible, and I was right. The opportunity to do in-depth consults with moms, while also getting a taste of working in a hospital setting, was wonderful. Seeing you interact with and provide assistance to moms, babies, and families has been such a valuable experience. You are amazingly good at what you do.”
– A.N. Media, PA
Physican residents from Einstein Hospital, Drexel University, Thomas Jefferson Hospital are currently scheduling days at the BRC to observe our lactation consultants during their women’s health/public health rotations. We asked one of the residents, “What did you learn about breastfeeding in medical school?” He responded, “Not much!” The residents enjoy learning some of the clinical skills needed to assist breastfeeding mothers. If you work with new breastfeeding mothers and feel like you need to learn more to help them, call us today to schedule your observation days!
Quotes from Einstein Residency Program….
Your help is essential in the journey of educating future pediatricians. Our residents tell us that by visiting your site they have learned invaluable information regarding the resources you provide to our families in need.”
Quote from a Penn Nursing Student
I want to thank you for the opportunity to shadow your work as an IBCLC. My visit to the BRC was so inspiring and I am more excited than ever about my future in nursing and midwifery. Your organization is an invaluable resource to families in our area and I will continue to spread the word about the services you offer.”

Quote from a Nursing Student
Going into this clinical assignment, I had a very basic understanding of what an IBCLC does. I only saw your role in the hospital setting and it was a very small snap shot of how you impact the health of our population. With each visit I learned more latching techniques, feeding positions, the use of a nipple shield, and how to supplement. I would like to thank you for your time and deviation to the education of the community and health care providers.”
