Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to feed and bond with your baby!
Research has shown time and time again the many benefits babies receive from breastfeeding. Whether it’s your first or your fourth baby, you will have breastfeeding questions!
As much as we would like it to, breastfeeding may not come as naturally to you and your little one as you thought it would.
Some mothers have questions, concerns or even major issues surrounding breastfeeding and need to seek a trained, compassionate person to give them the assistance they need to enjoy the breastfeeding journey.
A Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is an International Board Certified health professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding.
I, Angela Plunkett RN, BSN, IBCLC, am a Pediatric RN and IBCLC with over 20 years of experience assisting mothers and babies on their breastfeeding journey and beyond.
I personally loved breastfeeding our 5 babies and want to help you find that same joy breastfeeding your baby.
