Are there job prospects for Lactation Consultants?

User - posted on 04/18/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




I'm looking for advice from lactation Consultants on job prospects. I'm interested in becoming an LC and I''ve looked into what I need to do and have that sorted, but I don't know what jobs will be available at the end. I'd really appreciate any advice, particularly from those in Australia. I'd really like to pursue this but if there is no job at the end... Well I hope someone out there has some good news for me!

Good for you for wanting to be an LC! I hope to become one as well in a few years. I have a friend who's an IBCLC. She does individual consultations. She just opened up an office and holds classes. She's been in business for, gosh, 10 years, I think!
