Basics of Lactation Insurance
Rebecca Costello, MPH, IBCLC
After working as a doula and childbirth educator, she decided to pursue a Master’s in Public Health, in Maternal and Child Health, from the University of North Carolina. There, she was also in the first class of the Mary Rose Tully Training Initiative, a Pathway 2 IBCLC training program.
Following graduation, Rebecca worked full time as an IBCLC in a large academic hospital. She then became the Director of Lactation Services at a busy freestanding birth center, expanding the lactation services there to 30+ appointments/week. After making the move to a new state, she set up a private practice and continues to work with new families.
Having encountering obstacles to becoming, and working as, an IBCLC, she loves offering education that allows other LCs to establish their practices.
