If you are expecting a little one, you may be planning on breastfeeding. Whether it’s for the first time or round five, every experience is different, as every baby is different. Lactation consultants are the best support through this journey, and I’ve found three highly-rated Baltimore lactation consultants to share with you. Keep reading to learn more about them.
The first on my list of Baltimore lactation consultants is the Breastfeeding Den! Owner and consultant Katy is a certified International Board of Lactation Consultant. She formed Breastfeeding Den as she knows the breastfeeding struggle first hand. She wanted moms to feel encouraged through this process.
Classes at the Breastfeeding Den are offered for assistance to moms. The Breastfeeding Basics class is available both online and in person. She also offers a Breastfeeding and Working class, as well as a Breastfeeding for the Birth Professional class.
At the Breastfeeding Den, support isn’t limited to just classes and consultations. Katy knows exactly what moms need during their journey to and through breastfeeding. She has a variety of accessories in her store for moms. She also carries a variety of nursing and maternity wear.
I personally used Katy when my second son was having latching/gas problems. We first did a 1 hour virtual meeting. Katy was so detailed in the questions she was asking to really get to the cause of my problems. After the meeting I got several exercises to do and recommendations on things to change. She thought it would be best to come in for a in person visit. After our in person visit she further tweaked some things and our problems were resolved within a week. I am so grateful for Katy and highly recommend her.
You can check out the Breastfeeding Den at 2 Hamill Rd, Suite 344, Baltimore, MD 21210.
The second on my list as a highly-rated Baltimore lactation consultant is the Rumina Center. They are a postpartum wellness center with International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
