Breastfeeding Support Services
Breastfeeding is a natural, though learned, skill for both mother
and newborn. There are few moments more cherished than those spent
during the quiet bonding of feeding your new baby. However, it
is natural to have questions and concerns about this method.
Munson Healthcare offers support and counseling
for mothers who are preparing to breastfeed, whether it's their
first or fifth time.
