Lactation Support at Athens Regional

While breastfeeding is a rewarding benefit for baby and mom, it certainly can offer challenges. It’s common for mothers to feel overwhelmed and insecure at first. Professional and peer support can be very helpful!

Athens Regional Lactation Consultants do not aim to impose their goals onto mothers. They strive to help each mother meet her breastfeeding goals, as breastfeeding goals vary for women with different lifestyles and personalities. They work to tailor their suggestions to the specifics of an individual mother’s situation.
