It is our belief that every new mother can benefit from lactation support, even in the absence of obvious complications. This not only benefits the new family with reassurance and documentation of normal infant feeding, but also offers an early safety net for babies who may be, unknowingly to the parents, feeding in a less-than-optimal capacity. Additionally, it offers an early contact point with live, compassionate support that is available 24-hours a day. A planned in-home postpartum visit with a lactation specialist can increase breastfeeding rates, and significantly reduce the stress and anxiety that may accompany the initiation of breastfeeding.
