Breastfeeding Education

Every woman’s breastfeeding journey is different, and Vida is here to support, answer questions, and empower mothers and babies to thrive in the breastfeeding journey. 

Vida Medical Clinic has a certified lactation counselor who provides free one-on-one breastfeeding education and lactation consultation.

You do not need to be a patient in the clinic to take advantage of this free service. Our lactation counselor provides information on the normal, natural process of breastfeeding, as well as some common challenges. The following is a list of some of the topics that we will cover:

  • The benefits of breastfeeding for mom and baby
  • How to prepare to breastfeed your newborn
  • Frequency and length of feedings
  • How do you know your baby is getting enough
  • How do I latch my baby to my breast
  • Common challenges of breastfeeding: flat or inverted nipples, nipple soreness, engorgement, plugged ducts, mastitis
