Medical Students and Family Practice Residents come to the mama 'hood as part of their breastfeeding elective to observe our breastfeeding triage group.  If you are interested in observing group, please contact

IBCLC training and outplacement

As of 2018, the mama 'hood is proud to offer a formal IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) internship program. The internship meets the requirements for both Pathway 1 and Pathway 2, as determined by the IBCLCE.

Our ideal candidate already has basic breastfeeding knowledge and has completed a 45 hour CLC (Certified Lactation Counselor) certification. Please contact if you are interested. 

If you are a health care provider in Colorado, we can supplement your current breastfeeding practice or help you build one from the ground up. Please contact for more information. 

Where are our interns now?
