Breastfeeding is the normal and natural way of feeding infants and young children. Breast milk is made specifically for human infants and children. Beginning your breastfeeding relationship in a positive way helps to ensure breastfeeding is a pleasant experience for both you and your baby. Breastfeeding should be easy and trouble free for most mothers.

The large majority of mothers are perfectly capable of breastfeeding their babies exclusively for up to at least a year. Learning about breastfeeding during pregnancy and having a supportive birth team can make a major impact on you and your baby.  

Using a Certified Lactation Counselor as part of your birth team will help you to establish breastfeeding, build a bonding relationship with your baby, and help you to feel secure in the beginning stages and throughout your breastfeeding relationship.
