Breastfeeding Support
Ultimately, we are here for you as a friend and have been through the transition of a pregnant woman to breastfeeding mother.

Periodically throughout your pregnancy and after delivery, we will contact you offering support. We will be available to answer any questions or concerns you might have. The goal of this program is to help mothers overcome any breastfeeding barriers and to offer positive support and encouragement when problems do arise. Any questions you might have are important to us no matter how big or small.

We will be helping moms address issues such as getting off to a good start with breastfeeding and maintaining a healthy milk supply. Resources such as breast pumps and classes will be available to all moms.

Did you know?
“The newborn baby has three basic needs; they are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts and security in the knowledge of her presence.
Breastfeeding satisfies all three.”
