Breastfeeding is natural, but it is also a learned behavior. Many mothers need hands on help to see their breastfeeding goals come to fruition. Leah offers one on one consultations in the privacy of your own home. A report of the consultation is sent to the baby's pediatrician and information can also be sent to the mothers healthcare provider as needed. Doctors appreciate this information and it helps keep the entire team better able to support the mother and baby with breastfeeding.
