Learning to breastfeed is a natural process, like falling in love. Success relies on large quantities of patience, practice, humor, and support- at first and sometimes throughout the process. For most women, mastering the art of breastfeeding can be hard, really hard. Yes, some just click- babe has a fantastic latch, mom's milk comes in quickly and they both have the positioning/latch down. For some, it can take days, even weeks for a mother and her baby to get the hang of breastfeeding. Good, knowledgeable, evidence based lactation support eases the rough spots, guiding you through tools and techniques that make it easier to keep going until breastfeeding becomes second nature. We think if we have breasts and a baby- it cannot be that hard, we can do this- and, Yes you Can! The reality is most of us do it with help, guidance, information, and positive, evidence based support.
