Lactation consultation: breastfeeding support
Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world and gives your baby the best possible start in life. It protects a baby from illness most evident during the first 6 months of life, but remains effective as long as the child is feeding and beyond. It is however a learning process and requires time, patience and knowledge.
