Breastfeeding (Lactation) Services

One would think baby and breast are meant for each other, so breastfeeding will be easy. For most it is. But for some women, breastfeeding presents various challenges from sore nipples to pumping at work. If you are having—or Clarissa Koenig photo: newborn yawningadopting—a baby, you should know breast milk is the healthiest food for your infant. If you are pregnant or have your little one already in your arms, a lactation specialist can help you learn about how to avoid problems with nursing or help correct problems that have already arisen.
