Breastfeeding is a beautiful, natural way to bond with and feed your new baby. The World Health Organization, American Academy of Pediatrics, and most other major health organizations recommend breastfeeding as long as it's mutually desired and beneficial for parent and baby. While natural, sometimes we run into bumps in the road. When issues arise, Labor & Lullabies has an answer. Our Certified Lactation Specialist can help you as you and your baby learn this new skill together.

The skin-to-skin contact involved in breastfeeding plays a role in the bonding between parent and child. The brain releases Oxytocin, forming a beautiful bond and creating positive feelings surrounding breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding helps stimulate the uterus to return to its normal size after pregnancy quicker. It also lowers your risk of breast and ovarian cancers, as well as Osteoporosis. The quiet moments away as you nurse can also help you relax.
Breast milk is a nutrition powerhouse perfectly balanced for your baby. It has the perfect amounts of vitamins, minerals, fats, and protein that your baby needs. It also contains antibodies unique to you, protecting your little one from illness. All-in-all, it's a perfect food for your baby!
