Dedicated to Helping You Achieve Breastfeeding Success

Breast milk is a special gift that you can give your child. It is considered the perfect food for your new baby. It helps newborns stay healthy by protecting them from certain illnesses and allergies, helping reduce infections and decreasing risk of childhood obesity. 

Breastfeeding is a skill that promotes bonding as both mom and baby learn the process.

Nursing moms benefit as well. Breastfeeding helps a woman recover from childbirth and may help her lose pregnancy weight faster while lowering her risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer and osteoporosis. Plus, mom’s milk is free and convenient!
