A Healthy Choice for Your Newborn

Breastfeeding has many benefits for mothers and their babies. Not only is breastmilk a nutritious and appropriately portioned meal for your baby, it also builds their immune system and strengthens the mother’s resistance to breast cancer. Breastfeeding is a personal choice, but one we strongly encourage because of its health benefits. Below is a list of local and online resources that can teach you more about breastfeeding.
