As a professionals working with pregnant, birthing, and postpartum families, we should be working together towards three specific goals:
Equity In Action
The IBLCE Code of Professional Conduct states that the IBCLC is to “Treat all clients equitably without regard to ability/disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, sex, ethnicity, race, national origin, political persuasion, marital status, geographic location, religion, socioeconomic status, age, within the legal framework of the respective geo-political region or setting.”
To me, ethical integrity means implementing policies and procedures that not only meet my obligation to provide equitable care to families, but also to center equity in all of my professional and clinical communications and relationships.
