Breastfeeding is a great way to bond with your baby while providing them with their perfect food. The research is clear - breast milk is a super food for babies perfectly tailored to the individual infant's specific needs. There are thousands of different compounds in breast milk including antibodies, growth factors, hormones, and so much more. Visit our Resources page for more information about breast milk and breastfeeding.
However, while breastfeeding is natural, it's not necessarily intuitive. Nursing can be a steep learning curve for both mom and baby and it can easily feel overwhelming without the right support. Both our midwives are Certified Lactation Counselors (CLC) and would love to help you on your journey through feeding your child. We can assess issues with latch, transfer, tongue ties, and positioning.
We also understand that not every mother can or wants to breastfeed her child - that's okay, too! However you choose to feed your child should be respected. Whether you want or need to pump and bottle feed, supplement breastfeeding with formula, or exclusively formula feed, we can help you find your path.
Breastfeeding support is included in our services for all of our clients who deliver with us, but we are happy to help anyone in the community who needs some extra support with their feeding plans regardless of where they received their pregnancy care. Contact Us to schedule your appointment.
