Bond & Beyond’s Breastfeeding Class is known throughout Coimbatore as THE go-to class before baby arrives.
The essential health benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby have been proven through exhaustive research. The problem starts when she thinks she is not making enough milk. Several breastfeeding journeys end right when they start, not because of the fault of the mother, but because her support system fails. A breastfeeding mom is empowered for life! A physiological connection gives breastfeeding moms a keen sense of her baby’s needs. It is a very symbiotic relationship. Breastmilk is a living substance and changes according to the way a baby sucks, the age of the baby, the time of day, germs baby has been exposed to and more.
Not all breastfeeding experiences are perfect from the start (or what we imagined them to be) and sometimes help is needed. A slight adjustment or a different perspective can make a big difference. Moms returning to work often benefit from the help and guidance of a lactation consultant. I can assist you with most breastfeeding difficulties through a consultation on lactation management.
