Dear Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor Families,

As we all know, the novel COVID-19 (the corona virus) has now been confirmed in Michigan. We are monitoring all local, state, and federal guidelines on the situation. Due to this we have moved to in person office visits or virtual consultations. This is obviously going to be very hard on all of us. However, we do feel that we can provide quality service online so don't worry if you feel you need to choose this option. You don't have to do this alone! email or call 734-975-6534 to set up your virtual consultation using Zoom.
Take care!
