You’ve chosen to breastfeed, but you’d like to know where to get support. Be at ease knowing our lactation consultants are here for you throughout the entire process.
How long should you breastfeed? If you choose to breastfeed your child, we recommend you breastfeed exclusively for the first six months and continue to breastfeed as you add foods to your baby’s diet, between six months and one year after birth. But even shorter periods of breastfeeding have benefits.
Our lactation consultants specialize in
breastfeeding and are certified by the International
Board of Certified Lactation Consultants.
They give you the latest information and helpful tips to make breastfeeding an easy and rewarding experience.
