Lactation and Breastfeeding Support

Mother Baby Bonding

“Breastfeeding reminds us of the universal truth of abundance; the more we give out, the more we are filled up, and that divine nourishment -the source from which we all draw is, like a mother’s breast, ever full and ever flowing.” Sara Buckley

There are innumerable benefits to breastfeeding. Gentle Strength Midwifery provides support and resources for every breastfeeding family. We offer complete midwifery care during the prenatal and postpartum period. The first week of your baby’s life is precious, challenging and essential to start off with a solid foundation when choosing to breastfeed. For this reason during the first week we provide home visits. Sandra has extended training above the basic standard as a midwife. She is a Certified Lactation Counselor.
