The benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby have been long proven by extensive medical research. Breast milk is the perfect first food and provides the most complete form of nutrition for your baby.
At Natural Beginning Birth Center, we are committed to supporting your choice to breastfeed. We encourage women to attend a La Leche League meeting during pregnancy, and can refer women to classes as well. Assistance with breastfeeding is provided to our clients immediately after birth, during post-partum office visits, and by telephone. All members of the birth center team are lactation trained and able to help in most situations. We will refer you to lactation consultants if you need more intensive lactation assistance.
