Certified Lactation Counselors: Breastfeeding Support
Just because breastfeeding is the natural way to feed your baby, doesn’t mean it’s the easiest way at first. That’s where we come in. We want you to have a successful breastfeeding relationship and support in the first few weeks is crucial.
I thought the hardest part of becoming a parent would be labor and delivery; instead, it was breast feeding my newborn son. Hiring a lactation consultant helped me make a few needed adjustments. It proved to be extremely beneficial for me.
Nashville Bradley Class Participant
All of our labor & postpartum doulas are trained in breastfeeding basics. We also have a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) on staff who specializes in “Natural Breastfeeding” which will help new mothers fix the most common breastfeeding issues.
