So you’d like to train to become a lactation consultant? There are two facets involved in lactation consultant training in Mississippi. The primary part of the training is acquiring an academic degree in a health field (like nursing, health care or health services). Employers will usually accept a bachelor degree but favor a master degree. Secondarily, you must gain practical, hands-on experience, either provided by your school or that you find on your own through a medical facility in the state of Mississippi.

After acquiring your academic health care degree, prospective lactation consultants in Mississippi also need training specific to breastfeeding and lactation subjects. Organizations in Mississippi that provide this sort of training can be found online or in brick and mortar facilities. Courses you can expect to take in lactation training programs include psychology, anthropology, sociology, anatomy (of both mother and child), child development, and public health. Depending upon the program you choose, coursework will account for 45 to 200 credit hours. Then you will also have to gain an additional 1000 credit hours of clinical experience in lactation consulting, which may be provided through your training program.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring Lactation Consultants in Jackson, West Gulfport, Gulfport, Biloxi and Hattiesburg, Mississippi may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the Tupelo Hospital, North Mississippi Medical Center, Baptist Memorial Hospital and University of Mississippi Medical Center.
