How Can We Help?
Breastfeeding Support Group
“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 Advocacy Organizations and information sites
Arizona Department of Health Services – LATCH-AZ website – a statewide breastfeeding coalition which serves as an umbrella coalition, bringing together other state breastfeeding coalitions and individuals to work on making Arizona a breastfeeding-friendly state:
Post Partum Support International Postpartum Support International (PSI) was founded in 1987 by Jane Honikman in Santa Barbara, California. The purpose of the organization is to increase awareness among public and professional communities about the emotional changes that women experience during pregnancy and postpartum. Approximately 15% of all women will experience postpartum depression following the birth of a child. Up to 10% will experience depression or anxiety during pregnancy. When the mental health of the mother is compromised, it affects the entire family.
Arizona Breastfeeding Coalition is a non-profit organization comprised of lactation advocates, lactation professionals, physicians, nurses, dieticians, and business and health care organizations from across our state. Our most important members are Arizona families wanting to make a difference
Post Partum couples provide information and resources to mothers and fathers. The resources here are intended to provide couples, families, and professionals with information and tools to help mothers and families heal from Postpartum Mood Disorders

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”
“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!”
“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!”
