Breastfeeding is a Health Decision for your baby and you

It is natural and breast milk is the ideal nutrition for babies.

Breastfeeding is a health decision.

Breastfeeding is certainly the most natural and adapted way to feed newborn.

Yet it is a learned behavior for both the baby and her mother. In addition, it is a lot of work and mothers breastfeed their newborn 8 to 12 times a day. Confidence and support are key for the mother to succeed in her lactation journey. After your baby’s birth, we recommend the support of a lactation consultant to hold your hand during these first weeks and guide you to get off a great start in your lactation journey.

Our experts- IBCLC consultants (International Breastfeeding Certified Lactation Consultant)- are available for private consultation prior to birth, at the hospital after birth, and at your home after baby is home. We recommend 1 to 2 private consultations for new mothers a few days after birth and after baby been seen by her/his pediatrician.
