In pregnancy, our bodies grow our babies, giving them exactly what they need to thrive. After birth, our bodies continue to grow our children by producing human milk for nutrition, immunity, food-security and nurturing care.

Milk production is driven by supply & demand. The more milk the baby drinks, the more milk our body makes.

A well latched-positioned baby, frequently breastfeeding on demand, will produce plentiful milk, even during stressful times like emergencies. Lots of skin-to-skin contact, reduces stress and increases breastmilk supply.

Did you know that low milk supply is rare, but is one of the most common concerns of mothers, leading to formula use? If you’ve stopped breastfeeding and want to re-start through relactation, or are mixed-feeding and want to build up your milk supply, reach out to a breastfeeding counselor for help.
