LACTATION AND PRENATAL

Consulting

Breastfeeding & Infant Support

Breastfeeding and infant feeding is a beautiful and natural process. Although natural, it is not always easy. Our lactation consultant can support, assist and guide both parents and infant(s) throughout the dynamic and sometimes challenging process. If you are struggling with or have experience with recurring issues then a lactation consultant can help support, manage and possibly prevent future issues. Our lactation consultant will try to address concerns, decrease challenges, and improve breastfeeding/feeding experience for families.

Our lactation services provided are supportive, warm and individualized for each family’s needs and goals.
