5 Boston Lactation Consultant Options for Breastfeeding Support

Young mother sits on a wooden chair in a dining room surrounded by bottles and breastfeeding gear. She holds her newborn son and nuzzles the top of his head, smiling. Father sits next to her and smiles while gazing at her face.

Breastfeeding can be a beautiful journey between you and your baby. Breastmilk can provide your baby with just the right nutrients and help to defend against infections and many other positive health benefits. It also can be very overwhelming. I recommend finding a lactation consultant during your pregnancy so you have an additional person to support you when your newborn arrives. All of these Boston lactation consultants are highly trained and hold the International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) certification.
