After Delivery

Need help with breastfeeding?

Lactation Consultants (IBCLC's) help mothers with breastfeeding problems.

What is an IBCLC? How can an IBCLC help me? 

         

Breastfeeding support can be found in a variety of places. The kind of support you need depends on the kind of breastfeeding concerns you have.

Lactation Consultants can help moms overcome breastfeeding challenges such as:

  • sore nipples

  • low milk supply

  • slow infant weight gain

  • infant latch issues

  • plugged milk ducts

  • other breastfeeding challenges for mom and/or baby

Breastfeeding support groups provide:

  • answers to common breastfeeding questions

  • encouragement

  • a great place to meet other breastfeeding mothers

  • a safe place to share feelings and experiences

  • an IBCLC and/or women with breastfeeding training and personal breastfeeding experience
