Every mother deserves to feel empowered and supported during the childbearing year. How, with whom and where she gives birth is a very personal decision. Having a guide for the journey can be invaluable for both mother and family.

In a similar way, breastfeeding is unique to every mother and baby. For some mothers who choose to breastfeed, there can be unexpected challenges along the way. Even though breastfeeding is natural, it is a learned skill. Getting the right help in the beginning can make all the difference.

Learning how to latch can take time… that’s normal

You can do everything right and baby might still have trouble

Ask for help and remember you can always begin again
