YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO GOOGLE UNTIL YOUR EYES BLEED JUST TO KEEP BREASTFEEDING
The days when moms had to ask their friends for help or rely on one-time assistance in the hospital are long gone. More than ever, moms are turning to professional lactation consultants as a way to get expert advice and individual help so they don't end up confused, alone, and riddled with mom guilt.
THERE'S ALMOST NEVER A TIME WHEN A BREASTFEEDING PROBLEM CAN'T BE FIXED!
If you're a breastfeeding mom, things shouldn't be hard. End of story. And anyone who claims that it's normal to be in pain, or have a baby that never sleeps, or can't latch, or that maybe you're just not "meant" to breastfeed hasn't seen the way we do things.
Because quite frankly...just like any other problem--from a broken leg to an undercooked steak--breastfeeding can be fixed and going well...but only when it's supported by expertise and the right strategy.
THE TRUTH IS IN THE NUMBERS
- When mothers receive comprehensive evidence-based support they are 60% less likely on average to give up breastfeeding.
- Studies show that moms who receive professional breastfeeding support report feeling more confident and end up breastfeeding for 20%-40% longer duration than moms who don't receive help
- Rates of exclusive breastfeeding in moms who receive individualized help are around 30% higher than moms who don't receive this support
- Women who have the correct knowledge of the advantages of breastfeeding, physiology of breastfeeding, and breastfeeding management are 10 times more likely to meet their breastfeeding goals than mothers who don't meet this criteria.
If breastfeeding feels more like a drain on your mental health, it's time to shake things up
When your baby was born, it came with a wake up call: breastfeeding is natural, but it's not always easy.
There's a reason why we do so much to prepare for the arrival of our babies in the form of birth classes, baby registries and the like: we want to give our children the best and ensure their health.
YOUR BREASTFEEDING EXPERIENCE SHOULD DO THE SAME.
Your breastfeeding journey should be building your confidence as a mother, not destroying it. That's the power of holistic lactation support that's intentionally designed to support you in breastfeeding your baby.
WE'RE NOT JUST LACTATION SPECIALISTS
We know there are thousands (tens of thousands?) of hospital and private practice lactation consultants & counselors out there that you could hire to help you with breastfeeding. But nobody takes a modern holistic approach like we do -- and that's a promise.
The Holistic Lactation Difference
YOUR WELLBEING IS THE FOCUS (NOT AN AFTERTHOUGHT)
Does your current strategy sound a bit like, "what account can I follow to learn how to do this the right way"? Let's put that kind of thinking on ice. At Holistic Lactation, we create a care plan around your wellness & your breastfeeding goals, while still meeting the needs of your baby.
I regret that I’m just now getting around to writing this, but I couldn’t call my breastfeeding journey successful until just recently.
My baby is 3 months old, and I saw Jacqueline and her team when she was almost 2 weeks old. I had so many struggles in the early days, and everyone at Holistic Lactation was so kind, positive, and supportive. They found my daughter’s tongue and lip ties and gave advice that saved our breastfeeding relationship.
I thought I would never be able to exclusively breastfeed my daughter, but she has now been exclusively breastfed for about a month! I can’t thank the team at Holistic Lactation enough, and should I run into any issues down the road I will be back in a heartbeat.
