About the Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor
Having a new baby is confusing! So many questions. So many opinions! Let us help you if you are struggling with breastfeeding. We try to cut out the confusion, help moms feel more confident about their lives, and take the mystery out of breastfeeding.
We strive to provide accurate breastfeeding information and emotional support so that a breastfeeding family can feel confident and successful.
Our story: My name is Barbara Robertson, MA, IBCLC, and I have over 18 year experience helping and supporting nursing moms and babies. Why do I do this? Well, 20 years ago, my son wasn’t latching and I had no milk. With help and support, I was able to turn things totally around. If my family had not reached out for help, I didn’t even know there was breastfeeding help, I would have been an exclusively formula feeding mama. My support group at the time, only meet once a month, and that was not enough for me! To make sure moms have the chance to get out, I have created two, weekly breastfeeding groups and have a once a month working and breastfeeding group. I am also a well, um, hard to fit girl. I never had a good nursing bra. So, I try to have those available too! We are trying to provide everything a breastfeeding family might need or want.
