Teach your baby to eat local. Breastfeed.

Lactation Services 

**Services offered in-home or virtually through a secure video platform**

Nourishing your baby is an intimate matter, but it can be a tricky one to approach alone. Whether it's your first baby or your fourth, we can help you achieve the feeding experience you want. We offer best practice lactation services from pregnancy through weaning in a relaxed, unrushed, environment of your choice.  

Why Breast Milk?

The Best Nutrition for Baby

Breastfeeding is the way all babies are meant to be fed. It is the safest way to feed your baby and can make life easier for the whole family. Breast milk is always ready and 

contains live cells. It has over 200 vitamins and minerals that your baby can digest easier than those in formula or cow's milk and is essential to your baby's brain, nervous system and visual development.

Beneficial to You

Breastfeeding reduces your risk of breast and ovarian cancers.You may also have stronger bones, and quicker weight loss and recovery from childbirth.

 

 

Breast milk is warmth, nutrition and love all rolled into one

Regulates Hunger and Fullness Cues

Breastfed infants tend to have better control over the amount of milk they consume because they rely on internal hunger cues to eat rather than external cues to finish eating. This makes them less likely to struggle with medical conditions and complications related to overweight or obesity as they grow.

Bonding between You and Baby

The loving interaction between a mother and her baby often helps the two get to know each other better, and helps newborns feel safe, learn to socialize and decreases their risk of failure to thrive.
