breastfeeding (lactation) counselor
First and foremost I want to say that, there is nothing better then a mothers milk and being able to breastfeed her baby. The bond between mother and child during breastfeeding is something that is incredibly special. There are also women who desire to breastfeed and it just isn't possible for a number of reasons. Maybe you can breastfeed but need to supplement your baby. Whatever the cause, we support your decision and applaud you for making a decision that is right for you!
Breastfeeding is hard, it's demanding, it's life changing. Breastfeeding is rewarding, special, beautiful. Nothing can compare to the sensation of being able to understand the what and why's of breastfeeding and being able to sit back and enjoy the rewards of supporting a healthy choice for your baby(ies).
There are so many questions and worries when it comes to breastfeeding. Is baby getting enough milk? Am i producing enough milk? Am I holding the baby right? These are just a few of the questions that we feel and encounter. As a breastfeeding counselor, we can help answer those questions as well as direct you and guide you to make breastfeeding a wonderful, empowering experience for both you and your baby!
As a Breastfeeding Counselor, we support the mother in whatever decision she makes. We are here to answer your questions, demonstrate and educate.
