Breastfeeding provides many physical and emotional benefits to mother and child. Women have breastfed for generations. However, the dynamics of the workforce and the fact that we no longer live in a culture where women routinely witness and learn how to breastfeed can bring about questions and challenges.
Our doctors are here to support you, and not to judge you. We are available for breastfeeding consultation.
Also, another great resource is La Leche League. It was founded to give information and encouragement, mainly through personal help, to all mothers who want to breastfeed their babies. The mission of La Leche League is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
