Lactation Coaching

As a mother, choosing to breastfeed is a deeply personal decision and a significant part of your relationship with your baby, yet many mothers encounter frustrating challenges, such as difficulty with latching or feeding, early on. Lactation issues are rarely discussed, leaving mothers without the necessary support. EstrogenicA offers lactation coaching to provide expert guidance and support, helping mothers successfully navigate breastfeeding and feel confident in this new phase of their lives.

What is Lactation Coaching?

Lactation coaching is a valuable service provided to mothers who may be facing challenges with breastfeeding. It involves the guidance and support given by a certified breastfeeding specialist (CBS) to assist mothers in successfully breastfeeding their babies. These professionals are highly trained in the field of human lactation and provide evidence-based information and assistance to mothers.

A CBS helps you navigate through the process of breastfeeding, offering tips on proper positioning and latching techniques for skin-to skin contact. They play a crucial role in empowering mothers and promoting successful breastfeeding outcomes for both mom and baby.

Your CBS can also address issues like having high or low milk supply, breast engorgement, clogged ducts, sore or inflamed nipples, challenges expressing milk, and support for babies who refuse either breast or bottle.

By offering personalized support and guidance, lactation coaches aim to help mothers feel confident and comfortable in their breastfeeding journey, ensuring the well-being of both mother and baby.

What is a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist?

A certified breastfeeding specialist is a type of breastfeeding counselor certified by the Lactation Education Resources, a comprehensive training center. A CBS is a healthcare provider who receives 52+ hours of training on lactation, human milk, anatomy and physiology, counseling, infant and child development, positioning and latching, medications and breastfeeding, and how cultural expectations define breastfeeding support.

Your EstrogenicA CBS is trained and certified every 5 years to meet your specific needs and provide you with holistic, compassionate support throughout your breastfeeding journey.

How Can a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist Help Me?

Certified Breastfeeding Specialists use their extensive training and expertise to provide individualized support to help you establish and maintain successful breastfeeding relationships, including weaning your baby off of breast milk.

Working with a CBS can provide reassurance and practical solutions to common breastfeeding problems, promoting a positive breastfeeding experience while ensuring the health and well-being of you and your baby. They’re trained to educate you and help you with specific issues, such as:

  • Creating a feeding schedule
  • Managing milk supply
  • Helping with latching
  • Ensuring weight gain in the early weeks
  • Finding the best breastfeeding position
  • Helping you express milk

Your EstrogenicA CBS will identify, troubleshoot, and solve specific issues with you, while you’re still expecting, in the first few weeks of life with your infant, or ready to transition to the bottle.

Benefits of Working with a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist

Collaborating with a lactation consultant offers incredible benefits for mothers. Beyond providing evidence-based practices and support that can help mothers overcome breastfeeding challenges, a CBS is an integral part of a mother’s support network during the later stages of her pregnancy and during breastfeeding. 

You can gain confidence in your breastfeeding abilities and receive personalized guidance from your CBS in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. The ongoing support and expertise of your EstrogenicA CBS can significantly enhance the breastfeeding experience, leading to improved maternal and infant health outcomes and fostering a strong bond between mother and baby.
