Breastfeeding Support Group

N

Online breastfeeding mothers group – This is a mother to mother support group which through information, education and support, encourages a confident and positive approach to newborn mothering and breastfeeding.  .

“I never realized how important it was to be around other new mothers – until I had my baby.  Not everyone understands the breastfeeding mother and how hard it can be sometimes.  A huge plus is the convenience of meeting online so there is no need to drive to a group.  There is nothing better than getting to know other moms who all know exactly how you feel.  Having an experienced IBCLC educating and supporting us is very helpful too”

 Breastfeeding Help

Mothers have many questions about breastfeeding and what to expect the first several weeks.  Breastfeeding is a learned art and skill, unique to every mother and baby.  Breastfeeding help is available when, for some of us, this skill does not come easy at first.

It is normal for the breastfeeding relationship to take from 2-4 weeks to establish.  Some mothers give up during this postpartum period when they are in pain, they are having difficulties with latch on, feel sleep deprived, confused, overwhelmed and alone.

All About Breastfeeding offers private lactation consults which will provide you with personalized assistance.  Lori J. Isenstadt, IBCLC has over 20 years experience in providing professional, accurate and consistent breastfeeding help. With Lori’s guidance, compassion and expertise, mothers will gain confidence in their ability to breastfeed their baby.

What  people are saying about Lori J. Isenstadt, IBCLC

“Lori is truly the Mercedes in the breastfeeding community 🙂 Lori was there on day 2 of my baby girl’s life. She asked me to demonstrate the feeding that my baby and I were sharing. After a close watch she suggested a change. That change saved both my breasts from pain and my baby from starvation! Lori will be there right after delivery for my future child”

...Kayla

“I would highly recommend Lori to anyone struggling with breastfeeding. Lori was extremely informative and made me feel comfortable and confident that we could improve our situation. She answered all my questions and made sure to follow up after the appointment with helpful information and videos. Thank you Lori!”

...M.C.R

“I didn’t think I needed to take a breast feeding class because breast feeding is so natural. My doctor recommended Lori’s class to me and I’m glad she did. My husband and I had a one on one class/meeting due to my husbands crazy work schedule. Lori was super nice and made us feel so comfortable and answered any silly questions I had. She taught us tons, things I wouldn’t have even thought of. It was well worth the time and money!”
