Lactation Support Services

Breastfeeding has so many health benefits for you and your baby but pain, discomfort, and slow weight gain for baby may be making breastfeeding harder than you ever thought. Just like with natural birth, we think that nursing will be easy and intuitive but for most first-time moms (and even experienced moms), it is extremely challenging at first. If you find yourself having trouble nursing, do yourself and baby a favor. Before you give up, let Sacred Knowledge help you . In nearly all cases, we can teach you how to continue nursing (comfortably!) for as long as you and baby want.
