Breastfeeding & Postpartum Support

The first twelve weeks after a baby is born is critical for not only the baby but for the mom. Women and their partners need to know about the benefits of breastfeeding and receive the support they need to breastfeed their babies. While research has shown that breastfeeding is beneficial to both mothers and babies, national breastfeeding rates continue to show slow growth. Guiding Star Orange City seeks to improve breastfeeding rates and mother-baby bonds by creating targeted resources and support to women and their partners.
