Before giving birth, it's great to know the basics of establishing breastfeeding and knowing who to call if things are tricky when you get started.
After you're home from the hospital, I can make home visits to assess the latch and offer information and encouragement. Breastfeeding counseling from the comfort of your own home...in English!
Before leaving the hospital, after our home visits, or if your baby is in the NICU, I'm available via texting. Sometimes in-person isn't possible, but you still deserve individualized support!
