Gulf Coast Lactation
Establishing a healthy pattern of breastfeeding can be challenging, and good support in these first days is vital to success. If there are problems with latch, engorgement and/or supply, the issues need to be addressed as soon as possible after they surface. Milk supply can be depleted within twelve to twenty-four hours if breastfeeding is mismanaged. This is the source of the baby’s food.
It is crucial to the health of our society to provide breastfeeding support and education to new moms, especially in a society where so many work and where the “convenience” of using formula so often gets in the way of the healthier choice.
The mission at Gulf Coast lactation is to provide support to ALL moms in the area before and after discharge from the hospital.
