Lactation Consultants of Australia and New Zealand Ltd (LCANZ) is the professional organisation for International Board Certified Lactation Consultant’s (IBCLC’s) and others who have an interest in lactation and breastfeeding. Our core business is to provide members with information and educational opportunities to enable them to continue to advance their practice as lactation consultants, and enhance the profession of Lactation Consultancy generally in Australia and New Zealand. We also deliver educational opportunities to the wider population of health care professionals, to enable them to provide mothers with the most up-to-date information and expertise available on breastfeeding and lactation.

LCANZ provides a uniquely southern hemisphere approach to breastfeeding and lactation, and showcases the abundance of knowledge, research and skill in our region. LCANZ is the “peak body” of lactation professionals in this region and as such is in a great position to lobby Governments, and NGO’s on breastfeeding issues. We are also an affiliate of the International Lactation Consultants Association.
