Although Breastfeeding is a natural process, it can be a journey full of many challenges and uncertainty. Breastfeeding support helps address the issues or challenges you may be facing and offers tools and education to help you achieve your breastfeeding/feeding goals. From latch, supply, nipple damage, breast compressions, how to know if baby is getting enough milk, supplementing, positions, plugged ducts/mastitis, pumping and everything in between, breastfeeding support can help.

We can also create a strength program that is safe to do during the pre and postpartum period.
