Should I find a Lactation Consultant when I’m pregnant? Or is that too early?

It’s definitely not too early! I love it when a pregnant mom contacts me to inquire about my services while she’s pregnant. Breastfeeding challenges are on her radar, and she’ll be on mine. This means, I know to expect her phone call and will fit her into my schedule after her baby is born.

It greatly reduces the anxiety of a new mom just knowing she has the trust that she’ll be working with someone from the get-go and won’t need to wait until she’s having breastfeeding problems. Many new parents have no idea what to expect and don’t know when they need help. If I see someone three or four days postpartum, we can just nip potential problems in the bud.
