IMPORTANT NEWS: Information about COVID-19
To all MLCA members, supporters and parents,
As all of you have heard, we are currently in the midst of what has been now labeled a pandemic by World Health Organization involving Covid-19, a type of coronavirus. We know how stressful it is trying to wade through all of the information that is found online and on social media, so we are adding important links here on information around breastfeeding and breast milk during the Covid-19 outbreak. We will update regularly.

Our Mission Statement
MLCA is a 501.c.3 nonprofit organization
Our current directory is free for telehealth providers during the time of social distancing. Help is still available! These are IBCLCs who offer home visits, private office visits, breastfeeding clinics, pump rentals and related sales. If you are interested in being listed, please email us.
Here’s some of what we’re working on:
Full Directory: Virtual providers listed for free during the time of social distancing. Members will be permanently listed.
Lending Library: For aspiring IBCLCs and those who are recertifying.
Committees and Projects: Our Access Committee is comprised of a committed group of IBCLCs who are working to expand access to lactation services in the Commonwealth. Projects are geared toward increased visibility of the IBCLC in the community as well as mentoring the next generation aspiring IBCLCs. Members of MLCA are also working hard on IBCLC licensure through Project Licensure. Other committees coming soon.
