Public Health Congratulates Julie DeHollander for IBCLC Certification

Breastfeeding improves the health of both infants and their mothers, and lactation consultants are key to assisting women to initiate and maintain breastfeeding. Nevada County Public Health congratulates Julie DeHollander, Nutritionist, on her recent achievement of certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).  This certification is an accomplishment for Julie and an asset to the Public Health's WIC program.

For recognized health professionals, such as Registered Dieticians like Julie, the preparation for taking the IBCLC exam builds upon previous education in health sciences. Prior to taking the exam, healthcare professionals must also complete 1000 hours of clinical practice in lactation and breastfeeding care and 90 hours of education specific to human lactation and breastfeeding.  Passing the exam allows the IBCLC to utilize this credential as a professional member of the healthcare team specializing in lactation care. 

Becoming an IBCLC allows Julie to work with WIC staff and participants to increase breastfeeding rates in Nevada County, which contributes to all three aspects of the Public Health Department's mission:  It protects lives by reducing the chance of SIDS; it prevents disease, such as respiratory and gut infections for the infant and certain types of cancer for the mother; and it promotes health through optimal growth and brain function, as well as bonding and attachment. 

We all benefit from your success - congratulations and well done, Julie!
