What is Lactation Care?

Breastfeeding is a personal choice that every mother makes based on her needs and those of her little one. It has a wide range of benefits for both mother and baby including meeting evolving nutritional needs, emotional bonding, and numerous health advantages. However, breastfeeding can come with highs and lows. Whether you’re currently pregnant or have recently given birth, our experienced lactation specialists are trained to support you, physically and emotionally, through your unique journey. We’ve worked with hundreds of mamas and have a 100% breastfeeding initiation rate, with 95% of clients still exclusively breastfeeding at the third month.


What to Expect When Working with Us

When you first arrive for a lactation consultation, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff and guided to an exam room designed with your comfort in mind. Here you can privately discuss your concerns, goals, and questions with one of our expert lactation consultants. She’ll perform a thorough assessment and create a plan to address your specific needs which may involve demonstrating proper latch and positioning techniques, offering knowledge on how to care for your breasts, and suggesting lifestyle adjustments. 

At Alba Birth Center, we hold informed consent and respect for personal choices in the highest regard. Our midwives are dedicated to ensuring that you feel empowered and informed every step of the way. If there are alternative techniques or approaches that better align with your preferences or circumstances, we’ll gladly explore those options with you, ensuring that your breastfeeding experience is tailored to meet your unique needs and those of your precious little one. Schedule an appointment with our midwives to get started!
