Breast Feeding

We understand many women may be apprehensive or unsure at first about breastfeeding vs. bottle-feeding their baby. It’s normal to have many questions related to breastfeeding. Our doctors are here to support you.

The Office of Women's Health of the US Department of Health and Human Services also offers a wide array of helpful and reliable information about breastfeeding so that you can start off on the right foot.

Visit WomansHealth.gov for more information about breastfeeding.
