lactation consultant

What is a Lactation Consultant?

A lactation consultant is a breastfeeding specialist who is professionally trained in techniques that help educate, guide and instruct mothers on ways to feed their baby.

A professional consultant helps women who have encountered breastfeeding challenges, such as latching difficulties, low milk supply and painful nursing.

A certified lactation consultant can also help with babies who aren’t gaining enough weight.

No matter what stage you are at in your journey, we offer support and guidance to address your concerns and give you real life advice to set you and your family up for feeding success.
