Both may benefit from some time with a good teacher. Getting off to a good start is the key to successful breastfeeding. Our professional lactation consultants can help - in the hospital and afterward. All have advanced training in breastfeeding support, and they're certified by an international board of examiners. They'll help you learn effective positioning techniques, solve problems, and guide you over the bumps on the road to success. Call 757.312.3159 for personal counseling or appointments.
