breast feeding services

Breastfeeding may be natural, but that doesn’t mean its easy. Breastfeeding is a journey that you and your baby both learn and discover together. No matter what your breastfeeding relationship, with a little help and support, you can achieve any of your goals.

"I struggled with breastfeeding my children and was told it comes naturally. Unfortunately after a few days of struggling I gave in. I had flat/inverted nipples, thrush, raynaud’s, and cracked bleeding nipples due to a poor latch." - Candice
