Congratulations on your pregnancy and the upcoming birth of your baby! Choosing how to feed your baby will be one of the first decisions you make as a new parent. Breastfeeding is a wonderful and natural way to feed your baby, and a beautiful way for you and your baby to bond. Breastfeeding mothers say that breastfeeding is very rewarding, but also hard-work. My goal as a lactation counselor is to give you the tools you will need for your toolkit so you can approach breastfeeding confidently and reach your breastfeeding goals. Starting at 30 weeks, consider making a prenatal visit with me where we can complete your routine prenatal visit and then talk about breastfeeding. If any breastfeeding challenges arise, you are not alone. Call for an appointment and we will evaluate what is going on and work together to find a solution.
