Holly Erwin, LVN, IBCLC
Holly is a mom of three boys and has worked as a pediatric nurse for over 11 years within the Cook Children's Health Care System. When not working, she spends her time running to and from sports for her boys, being outside with her family and dreaming of traveling with her husband of 10 years. For now, she settles for their bi-annual date-night!
Through her own children and the thousands of moms that she has helped over the years, Holly found a special interest in infants and breastfeeding. In 2015, she became internationally board certified as a lactation consultant and now works as an IBCLC virtually through the Cook Children's telemedicine department.
An IBCLC is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
To qualify to be certificated as an IBCLC, you have to obtain health-science credentials, through specific classes, lactation specific education credentials, obtained through 90 hours of class work, as well as extensive lactation specific clinical experience, by providing many hours of assistance to pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Then, the exam is given worldwide on the same day, making it the only internationally standardized lactation credential available.
An IBCLC must re-certify every 5 years by testing or continuing education hours, and every 10 years by re-testing.
