To some women, breastfeeding comes as naturally as sneezing! Yet, many other mothers (new and experienced) need guidance and reassurance about breastfeeding. Some even find it downright difficult.
Breast milk is the single most essential food for your baby. Unless mother or baby has a severe medical problem, breast milk will be the only food her baby will need for many months. Breastfed babies are happier and healthier!
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization strongly promote and encourage prolonged breastfeeding. Many common interventions and routine birth practices inhibit a baby's natural instinct to nurse at birth.
We are careful not to disrupt this important phase of the birthing process.
We will make sure that the baby is able to nurse, and that Mom gets slow and personalized instruction on how to hold the baby, position the breast, and get baby to latch on. It is a topic that we'll ask about every day after birth until you and baby are nursing smoothly. Weather it's one month one year or extended . We will work hard to help you reach your goal.
