Why breastfeed

There are many wonderful reasons to choose breastfeeding for you + baby.

 

The hormones associated with breastfeeding improve your birth recovery. And bonus... love hormones are released to help form a healthy attachment to your baby.

 

Not only that, breast milk is the perfect food for your baby! Your immunity from disease is passed to your baby through your breast milk. How cool is that?

Breastfeeding with success

Breastfeeding isn't always easy though; it's a learned behavior for both mom + baby.

 

Breastfeeding your baby is an important aspect of becoming a mother. You, baby and of course your certified lactation consultant, work together to be successful!

 

At Canyon Midwifery we actively promote exclusive breastfeeding. We strive to make a pro-active setting for success for all our moms + babies. In order to meet this goal, we provide breastfeeding education and postpartum follow-up care to help you + baby!

What is an IBCLC?

IBCLC is an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant. Each IBCLC studies long hours, completes lactation support contact hours with parents, and takes a rigorous exam with others around the world. International education ensures lactation consultation is excellent + consistent world-wide! Now that's a cool goal!

 

This is the highest level of education a lactation specialist can receive. And guess what?! At Canyon Midwifery we have three to help our families meet their breastfeeding goals! They are re-certified every 5 years to ensure they are current in evidence-based breastfeeding care.
