Lactation Counselling Services include…

  • assessing effective/ineffective breastfeeding and milk transfer
  • conducting comprehensive assessment of mother and child related to breastfeeding
  • developing a care plan specific to the needs identified through assessment and counseling
  • incorporating evidence-based approaches to practice and make appropriate referrals

 

A good breastfeeding relationship is most easily achieved when breastfeeding is off to a good start. Issues that are addressed early may help to allay problems that can occur later on. We find that if a mom is supported around day 2-4 after the birth, this can encourage breastfeeding in the right direction.
