Legal and Ethical Issues for the IBCLC is the only text that covers the day-to-day legal and ethical challenges faced by the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in the workplace—in any work setting or residence. Since lactation management crosses many disciplines in the healthcare arena, most IBCLCs carry other licenses and titles. Consequently, what they can and cannot do while performing their lactation consultant role is of vital importance, information that is often difficult to find. Legal and Ethical Issues for the IBCLC is a practical resource that provides guidance on what is proper, legal, and ethical IBCLC behavior. It reflects the 2011 IBLCE Code of Professional Conduct and discusses how to devise an appropriate, safe, legal, and ethical plan of action in the consultation of a breastfeeding dyad.
