Preparing for Breastfeeding Success

Studies show that breastfeeding success starts with learning about and talking about breastfeeding during pregnancy. In fact the earlier in pregnancy you start to talk about breastfeeding the more likely you are to have long term success. 

Coming to a Breastfeeding class at The Birthing Tree or meeting with Ashlee privately to help you prepare for breastfeeding can help you begin to be aware of what breastfeeding in the early days and weeks may look like and tools you can have on hand to make things easier and more comfortable. 


Hands on Help with Breastfeeding

Once the baby is born Ashlee is happy to meet you at the hospital or in your home to help with any issues that may come up in the first few days and weeks of breastfeeding. Sometimes this early help is simply allowing you to find the most comfortable and effective way to breastfeed for you and baby and sometimes a lot of help is needed in the early days to get you and baby off on the right track. This is especially true if baby is smaller (preterm or low weight), very sleepy or jaundiced in the beginning, hasn't or you can't get baby to latch or you are recovery from a caesarean. 


Email or Phone support

If after an initial in person support session we determine there may be other things going on Ashlee can send you over resources to help with your particular situation. It may simply be sending you the evidence based information or referral for milk banks etc. If more advanced help seems like it might be needed I will point you in the right direction with resources for IBCLC's, dentist, speech therapists etc. depending on what is going on to help you address your issue.
