You and your baby deserve the best breastfeeding experience possible. With consistent, compassionate guidance it is possible to achieve the breastfeeding goals that feel right for you and your family.
Why hire a Lactation Consultant?
While babies are born with strong instincts that drive their desire to breastfeed, this does not guarantee that breastfeeding will be easy. Working with you before baby is born, in order to ensure the best start possible, or once baby has arrived, to get things back on track, my goal is to ensure you and your baby thrive.
Did you know…
- Breastfeeding saves you money - over $700 - $3,000 a year on artificial milk costs alone (double if you have twins!)
- Breastfeeding saves you time - less pumping / sterilizing bottles!
- Breastfeeding saves lives – breastfeeding decreases your baby’s risk of SIDS by over 50% and lowers your risk of breast cancer by 28-59% (and these are just two of the hundreds of benefits!)
- Breastmilk is amazing! - the amount baby consumes does not change from month one to month six. Breast milk simply changes in its composition to meet babies exact needs every hour of every day.
