Breastfeeding Information

One of the first and most important decisions a new mother will make is how she will feed her baby. Some women that make the decision to breastfeed their babies do not have any problems, while others struggle and need support, especially in the first few days after baby is born. Discouragement can quickly lead to panic as the struggling mother loses confidence in her ability to feed her child. Without support and encouragement, these mothers may decide to give up the idea of breastfeeding altogether.
The Certified Lactation Counselors at Brown County Public Health, who are either nurses or health educators, offer the support and encourgement that all mothers deserve, in the comfort of their homes. Whether it is a concern about a baby's latch, worries over milk supply, understanding how to breastfeed twins, or questions about how to store and handle expressed breast milk, assistance is available and is free of charge.
