Are you planning to breastfeed? A lactation specialist can support you.
A lactation specialist is a certified health professional who focuses on breastfeeding issues. They can help parents and infants with issues like milk supply, sore nipples, and breastfeeding positions. Some lactation specialists work in hospitals, birthing centers, private practices, or other health-related centers.
There are many ways to locate a lactation specialist at little to no cost–whether you have health insurance or not.
Before you have your baby, you should ask about getting support from a lactation specialist and find out if there are other breastfeeding benefits available to you, such as a breast pump and counseling services.
