IBCLC Private Practice Essential Toolkit
IBCLC Private Practice Essential Toolkit
Running a private practice as an IBCLC requires more than just your awesome clinical skills. You need to wrap your brain around the business, legal, and technical side of things. The reality is that so many lactation consultants hit the ground running in their private practices without having a stable infrastructure in place first. And it’s not long before you’re not enjoying private practice the way you thought you would.
You’ve come this far to become an IBCLC—you just need the tools to build your dream private practice.
When I got started as a private practice lactation consultant, I had paper charts and manila folders in a locked box. I had no idea what HIPAA was, and wasn’t even sure I could find clients, let alone make a living.
Over the years I pieced together my private practice, but it was held together by string and ragged duct tape. I was getting more calls, but couldn’t keep track of all that paper, let alone keep up with the phone calls and the texts.
You might be just starting out, or you might be sweating bullets underneath a stack of client files you keep promising to scan and shred.
What if I told you that your private practice can not only be efficient and productive—but it can also be enjoyable?
Peek inside the Toolkit
Build a strong legal foundation
Customizable, attorney-reviewed consent for care, payment policies, secure messaging disclaimer, and social media policies to cover your bases and bring you into compliance with privacy laws. Develop your personalized policies and procedures and you won’t have to worry you’ve overlooked something crucial.
Charting templates and workflows
Complete education on the fundamentals and nuances of charting and documentation so you can choose the EHR platform that makes the most sense for the way you think and work. You’ll have access to charting templates that you can customize and use right away in most of the major lactation platforms, along with detailed instructions for a complete client workflow from intake through reporting.
Tools for productivity
Dynamic, searchable database of the best internet resources for supporting your clinical protocols, continually updated and available on any platform. Workflow hacks and phone/text/email scripts you can personalize to save you time.
Insurance billing and HIPAA demystified (US)
Up-to-date, comprehensive templates, forms, training, and tools to help you navigate the Affordable Care Act (whether you’re out-of-network or in-network) and HIPAA, all specifically designed with the private practice IBCLC in mind.
You may wonder if you can just piece all this together by yourself, and the answer is that sure, you can definitely give it a try. But how well does that work for the families we work with, when they turn to the internet to try to solve their breastfeeding problems? Exactly.

You’re ready to make your private practice work for you
You know you can make improvements and need some guidance
You know you have what it takes for lactation private practice and want to do things right
You’re scaling rapidly and worried you can’t keep up because your systems are inefficient
You’re spending way too much time on charting, or your pediatrician reports, and you’re either staying up way too late or getting up way too early. Or worse—you’re cutting corners. Or not doing them at all.
You didn’t pay enough attention to HIPAA and you know you’re not as secure as you need to be, but the idea of tackling it feels just way too overwhelming so you ignore it.
You have a feeling you’re not as organized as you could be, but have no idea where to start.
You’ve been at this for awhile, but your disorganization has you feeling burned out.
The right way to do private practice your own way.
