Lactation Consultation

Every baby is unique. Whether your baby is fed by breast or bottle, we are here to support you along the way. We offer various services to encourage healthy feeding for all babies!

Breastfeeding Educators

Our Certified Breastfeeding Educators are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have, problem solve, or offer you support in your decision to breastfeed. Reach them anytime, day or night, by calling (712) 794-5260.

Lactation Consultation

No two babies are the same. If you've breastfed before or if this is your first experience, you and baby may both experience some difficulty. A lactation consultant can offer a specialized one-on-one approach to help your breastfeeding journey be a successful one. 

Our lactation consultant can offer:

  • Assessment of baby's latch
  • Insight on whether baby is getting enough milk
  • Help with positioning during feeding
  • Education on pumping and storing milk
  • And much, much more...

To request an individual consult with our Certified Lactation Consultant, call (712) 794-5260.
