Breastfeeding is a joyful and satisfying experience for most mothers and babies. Studies show that breastmilk provides the best nutrition for your infant's growth and development as well as extremely valuable health benefits for both mother and baby. Most health care professionals, including the
American Academy of Pediatrics
The American Academy of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, state that breastfeeding is the preferred method of feeding an infant. Although breastfeeding is a natural process, sometimes it doesn't always come naturally. Our nurses and board-certified lactation consultants at The BirthPlace are here to help moms overcome the potential challenges and fears that may come with breastfeeding. The BirthPlace team will provide you and your family with the important information needed to make an informed decision on the feeding plan for your baby.
