We want to help you be successful with your lactation goals.
We know nursing is important for babies' growth, development and overall health.
We also recognize there are barriers that can make it more difficult to make milk.
So we strive to make it easier and support all families with their baby feeding goals.
We strive to use inclusive terms and the preferred terms of each parent we work with.
We are here to help you with your goals for feeding your baby.
We recognize that breastmilk has the greatest health impact and is the norm for infant feeding. Breast is best and fed is necessary. If you need support with baby feeding, we are here to help. All babies need nourishment.
Reach out for support if you are unsure about your milk supply or need help with nursing or alternatives.
We are parents, birth workers, lactation specialists, educators, healthcare providers, and public health professionals joining efforts with facilitation and coordination by FIRST 5 Mendocino to strengthen local lactation supports.
We recognize and celebrate that breastfeeding/chestfeeding is one of the best ways to protect the short and long-term health of babies and the health of lactating people.
