Breastfeeding is best for you and best for your baby!
Although it is natural, breastfeeding is not automatic. We find that the more information and resources parents have, the easier breastfeeding can be!
We are here to help improve your breastfeeding experience
Despite the many benefits of breastfeeding, many mothers discontinue nursing because of problems, lack of support and information. Lactation Care, Inc., a small, woman-owned business (thank you for considering our services!) was founded to provide support and solutions for breastfeeding difficulties in a caring and effective manner. Breastfeeding support at work is critical for many mothers. Lactation Care, Inc. has been providing corporate lactation products and services for the better part of 30 years. Our corporate clients include major universities, IT companies, law firms, financial institutions and social media giants. Whether your workforce is big or small, we have the flexibility to craft a dynamic program that works for your company’s home and branch offices. If you are transitioning back to work, ask your HR department about their corporate lactation program. Please see our Corporate Lactation Program information or contact us about establishing one.
We receive referrals from pediatric and obstetric offices, as well as self-referrals.
