Breastfeeding is the best way to make sure your infant gets a great nutritional start. While breastfeeding is natural, that doesn’t mean it is easy. With proper education and assistance we can help mothers and their babies focus on what’s important, creating that special emotional bond while providing their baby with the nutrients they need.

Benefits of Breastfeeding:

  • Breast milk is filled with antibodies that protect infants from getting sick
  • Breast milk is a much more easily digestible food source
  • Helps with weight loss and returns uterus to pre-pregnant size
  • Contributes to maternal-baby bonding
