I've got 3 classes left to finish my prereqs. I will be applying next summer doing pathway #2 at UCSD in california, and I'll be doing it online.


Idk if y'all remember me, but since I had my son 7 weeks ago I've been bfing again! I used to come here because I had such a terrible supply with my baby girl born in Dec 11. Well now it's the complete opposite. I'm a milk machine! I have between 700-800 oz of BM stored up this time. Guess placenta smoothies really did work!

So that's me and my update. Looking for anyone who has gone through the IBCLC process.

Nope I havent, it still remains my dream job. Not sure if it is worth it to go through it for other reason than personal enjoyment/enlightenment. IBCLC is a pretty unknown species around here.

I see it as worth it. It doesn't cost that much as far as degrees or certificates go and a starting salary of 50k a year is pretty nice to me! I pretty much had most of my pre reqs done since I did general ed classes in high school, and then I went through the lab tech program which got me most of my health sciences degree (just one more math class!) and since I work in a hospital all those little continuing education classes are knocked out and done with. So when I finish bio and human anatomy and physiology I can enroll in summer, start in September, finish in June and Test by July. Easy Peasy. And since I am in the military the post 9 11 bill will pay for my school and living expenses so I can go full time. It's a pretty sweet deal all around. Go for it if you can! The certificate program at UCSD is only 3 grand or something so.

I should be ready to take the exam next summer!! I have everything done except 2 or three education requirements which I should get done in fall and winter quarters.

I'm actually looking into starting this!! How neat that i stumbled on this thread.
It's a bit overwhelming to me since I'm not clear on exactly what I need to do first. I have some college credit but no degree yet. I have psych courses as well as an early childhood ed course that I think will count towards the 8 (or is it 14?) classes that you need to take for pathway 2. So should I finish all those up first and then you apply for the ibclc course? Can you find that online? I kept hitting dead ends with that...
Good luck to you!!
