Find a Lactation Consultant

There are publicly funded services in the community offering Lactation support. To access these services ask your Lead Maternity Carer or Well Child provider, or contact your local maternity hospital or birthing unit.

To check whether someone is a current IBCLC go to the IBCLCE public registry webpage and search by in their full name.

As stated in the NZLCA Constitution, this Directory lists only those LCs working in private practice as per the NZLCA constitution. The Directory is due to be updated by 1 July 2018.
