The Benefits of Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding can help you bond with your baby while you are providing your baby with the most complete form of nutrition that is easy for them to digest, while also supporting a healthy immune system.

Some benefits for you while breastfeeding are:

  • Breastfeeding helps your uterus return to its original size more quickly, which reduces the amount of bleeding after birth
  • While you nurse your baby you will usually have a longer time before your periods return and you may find it easier to lose the weight you gained while pregnant.

"I hesitated to see a lactation consultant for a while, but I now regret not going sooner. After four months of struggling with breastfeeding, just one meeting with Allison helped redirect the issues I was having. After seeing Allison and trying her suggestions, I am confident that my child is getting the nutrition they need! Now I fully enjoy feeding my baby and am out of the dark cloud of uncertainty and stress. I only wish I'd seen her sooner!”
