i am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

hi all, sorry for the long hiatus...yes, to much to write, but little time to do it...

first, let me start with a good news...remember that i've written about the MILCC scholarship award for me to sit for the International Board Lactation Consultant Examiners exam? yes, i sat for the exam on 29th July 2010...2 papers- 75 statements questions in the morning and 100 pictures questions in the afternoon...boy, that was exhausting...not forgetting that i was stuck in a massive traffic jam from Bangi to Kajang interchange due to an accident of reckless drivers on drizzling morning...lucky me, my dear hubby took a day off to send me to the exam venue at Hospital Selayang..if not, i would've cry in panic while driving..alhamdulillah, i managed to arrive to exam hall in time, merely about 20 min before the exam started...

there were 6 candidates sitting for the exam..me, being a first timer, i was nervous...i can't say how well or how bad i did in the exam..i prayed for the best and waiting for the results was such a longest wait ever..

finally, the results were announced on the IBLCE website on 29th October 2010...i browsed through my webcode number and my heart was pounding hard...and finally, there it was my number...and i passed the exam! alhamdulillah..i couldn't believe my eyes and re-checked my number again and again, just to make sure...(because the number immediately below me, failed)..i even called my dear hubby to check for me...when his 4 eyes checked and confirmed that my number  showed that i passed, then i agreed to believe...

so, officially i am thus awarded the right to use the title International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) for a period of 5 years...yes, i'm proud of myself and this is what i really want to do- helping mother and baby pairs out there to successfully breastfeeding with confidence...



insya allah, i will carry this amanah with all my heart...thank you all for the prayers and your support, and may Allah bless us all..

Congratulations Dr Ezura! I am one of your *silent reader* & found your entries on breastfeeding very useful & informative. I just nak tanya about 'induced lactation' by way of medical intervention. maybe pills/injection untuk org2 yg berniat nak susu kan anak angkat or maybe mothers yg seriously in need to boost their milk production. where can we get help on these sort of things? which hospital / which doctor should we meet? TQ
