Work and breastfeeding can happen! However, 80% of breastfeeding mother stop breastfeeding within 1 month of returning to work!  Don’t become part of this statistic! Knowledge and support are the answer.

What can help?  As a breastfeeding mom returning to work you might feel a bit overwhelmed. Let us help you out! We have the support, education, and retail products you might need. Research has shown that mothers who feel comfortable and confident about their return to work plans have the highest success rates.

A private going back to work consultation: We will meet with you to discuss your particular transitional needs. This private format not only allows for basic working and breastfeeding information to be shared but also lets mothers have time to talk about her concerns, fears, and logistics of her work situation. Together, we will help create the strongest work and breastfeeding plan possible. Research shows that mothers who have good social/emotional support combined with accurate breastfeeding information transition back to work smoothly!
