We are trained to help families on their breastfeeding journey.
Our providers have received extra training in the support of families on their breastfeeding journey. Breastfeeding protects against a variety of disease and conditions in infants including diarrhea, respiratory infections, type 1 and 2 diabetes, lymphoma, leukemia, and Hodgkin’s disease, childhood overweight, obesity and many more.
There are also maternal health benefits to breastfeeding such as decreased postpartum and menstrual bleeding, a quicker return to pre-pregnancy weight, and a decreased risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
