Certified Lactation Counselor:  As a certified lactation counselor, I can help you prepare for breastfeeding while you are still pregnant by giving you some general information as to what to expect. Once you have your baby, I can come to the hospital/birth center/your home and help you to get started and answer any questions you might have. While breastfeeding can be very natural for some moms and babies, others may need some help getting started. You can contact me if you are running into any issues and we can get together to work them out.  In our country, our breastfeeding initiation rate is good at 75%, but we are lacking in support services for afterwards. You can inquire on the contact page, or give me call, or send an email.  Additionally, I have a Medela Symphony breastpump for rent for $65.00 per month if you are not able to get one from your insurance company.
