Many people assume mother and baby just naturally know how to breastfeed. Breastfeeding, however, goes more smoothly when mother has a basic understanding of breastfeeding management. Babies are born with instincts and reflexes but not knowledge of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is learned.

Now you and your family can learn about breastfeeding in your own home, either before baby is born or you can have a breastfeeding evaluation after baby's birth, from a certified lactation consultant. Payment required at the time of service. Some health care plans may provide reimbursements.
