Get Your Breastfeeding Questions Answered

Reasons to See a Lactation Consultant

Whether it’s your first or fourth baby, if you’re a breastfeeding mom, you probably have questions. So many questions! “Am I doing this right?” “Is my baby getting enough milk?” “Why are my breasts sore?”

​While breastfeeding is a natural process, sometimes it doesn’t come naturally to all moms and babies. This is when an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant can help ease some of your worries, and assist with some of the difficulties you may be experiencing. You can find a Lactation Specialist on staff at the hospital where you gave birth, or one might be recommended by your pediatrician’s office. You can submit your question and consult with one of our Lactation Consultants online.
