Classes Now Offered On-line via Zoom
Breastfeeding offers important and wide ranging benefits for both moms and their infants. Besides the natural, nutritional components in breast milk to sustain your baby's physical, neurological and emotional growth, breastfeeding passes along important immunological benefits to the nursing baby, which can significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of early illnesses. We believe that successful breastfeeding is an essential part of your newborn’s development, and it is our primary goal to support you in meeting your personal breastfeeding goals.

For many new moms, breastfeeding is a smooth transition. For others it can be more challenging. Our team of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, many of whom are also registered nurses, have decades of experience helping mothers who are struggling in a highly personalized individual or small group setting. They are highly recommended by pediatricians across town, and they see patients in our private offices or at your home.
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies are required to provide new mothers with a breast pump to support nursing. These pumps can be effective, but we find that there are frequently delays in receiving them, and many mothers who are just beginning to nurse appreciate the better performance of hospital grade breast pumps until their milk supply is fully established. We rent high quality Medela pumps on a short and longer term basis, and we also have replacement parts available for purchase.
