Lactation Home Consultation by Valerie
Breastfeeding is the most precious gift you can give your baby. No woman is born knowing how to breastfeed. It is also not a reflex that you can develop. Breastfeeding is a learned skill.
While many mothers and babies breastfeed without difficulty, many require help, especially in the early weeks.
