Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the first step to a healthy life and forms a natural and lasting bond between mother and child. The more a mother breastfeeds, the greater will be the benefits to mother and baby. Research shows that breastfeeding provides many health benefits for you and your baby. But it also can be difficult to manage breastfeeding in today’s hurried world. Learning all you can before you give birth can help. The decision to breastfeed is a personal one. As a new mom, you deserve support no matter how you decide to feed your baby.
