SERVICES - Lactation Consultant

So, we’ve all heard it a million times, “Breast milk is best”. But did you know that a large percentage of women stop breastfeeding well before baby turns 6 months old? Many also experience problems with latching, or fear their milk supply is too low. These are just a few of the reasons to meet with a lactation consultant.

Lactation consultants can help ease stress and frustration when problems with breastfeeding occur early on in an infants life, which can be highly stressful, especially if you expect breast feeding to be easy and natural (which it is for some babies, but not all). Whether you have a problem or want to be prepared in case of one, seeing a lactation consultant can help make breastfeeding less stressful and more enjoyable for both mom and baby. After all, breast milk really is best!
