Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding Support Services/Workshops Through Mama Assurance 

Certified Lactation Counselor, Annie Harold, offers a free breastfeeding workshop every month at Birthcare and Women’s Health. The workshop lasts for less than one hour. There are some things, but not many, that mothers and their partners need to know before birth. Expectant  parents leave the workshop with knowledge of the biological aspects of breastfeeding, a few important tips for the early days and overflowing with confidence in their natural ability.

Do you have lactation support for the first weeks of breastfeeding?! Annie Harold, a certified lactation counselor offers ON CALL lactation support to Birthcare families who register with Mama Assurance. For more information about lactation support services visit  Mama Assurance on line. Services are at low or no cost to families because lactation services from a certified lactation counselor are covered by insurance by law, as defined by the affordable care act.
