Breast/Chest feeding can be an incredibly beautiful and powerful experience for parents: it facilitates a strong emotional bond between parents and baby; it makes you feel empowered as a parent; and it is fantastic for your baby’s health.
Breast/Chest feeding can also be extremely frustrating. There is a definite learning curve, and many parents find themselves experiencing difficulties.
A certified lactation counselor is trained to teach parents how to feed their baby and help them with issues such as painful nursing, low milk production, and latching difficulties.
