Baby Nurse or Newborn Care Lactation Support

Happy Newborns’ Lactation Specialists Help Solve Challenges with Breastfeeding


Expert Lactation Support Benefits Both Mom and Baby

Like many aspects of the postpartum phase, breastfeeding seems like it should be pretty easy and straightforward since it’s a very natural mammalian process. Well, sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t. For those times when it isn’t or where there are many questions—after all, breastfeeding changes as baby develops—Happy Newborns’ Lactation Support services educate and encourage new moms as well as address breastfeeding challenges. In addition to specific Lactation Educators, many of our Newborn Care Specialists and Postpartum Doulas offer Lactation Support as part of their work in the home. Of course, phone consultations are an option as well, however we strongly encourage home visits to fully assess and advise. 


Lactation Counseling Options


Happy Newborns’ flexibility reflects the diverse needs of modern families, particularly mom in the instance of breastfeeding. Therefore, we offer the following Lactation Support options from our fully qualified, experienced Lactation Educators.
