Breastfeeding Help for New Mothers

NursieSides Lactation Support is a new private practice/business in the area offering in-home and virtual lactation visits. Many mothers are sent home after giving birth without a clear plan to help them overcome breastfeeding challenges that may arise. Even though insurance plans cover lactation consultations, mothers are not sure how to access them.


Owner Leslie Cree, certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, says, “Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed a baby, providing custom nutrition and transfer of immunities to protect infants from illness and disease. When a mother breastfeeds, the activity has short- and long-term benefits for her also. Breastfeeding is ecological, sustainable and always available in an emergency. In our culture, establishing breastfeeding can be challenging for a variety of reasons. Lactation consultants are available in the community to see parents and help establish plans to ensure both baby and mom thrive.”
