We use the latest in educational technology (the innovative online platform Thinkific) for easy access to its multimedia course materials—short videos, articles, links, handouts, studies, reflection questions, and two assignments—rather than hours and hours passively watching pre-recorded lectures.

In our self study course, you have the opportunity to learn directly from the book’s author, plus after the course, you’ll have the perfect resource for your lactation practice. In addition, students shipping to US addresses also receive a 40% discount on its hardcover edition at Nancy’s website.

Regular online access to Nancy and Barbara

A Balance of Both Worlds

Research clearly shows that sitting quietly and listening to lectures (in person or online) is not likely to bring about the kind of positive behavioral changes you need to become an effective clinician. Unlike other courses that provide mostly pre-recorded PowerPoint lectures, our course uses a wide variety of resources, and gives you regular access to world-class experts and a wide variety of engaging ways to learn.

Having access to the author of one of the premier text books in our field is one of the amazing benefits of this course. Nancy and Barbara will be hosting monthly meetings for Q and A, discussions of the materials, and bonus information.
