Lactation Counseling

Breastfeeding Assistance

Breastfeeding is a great way to provide your baby with the nutrients it needs. Research has also shown that it can also give your newborn an early boost to their immune system. Although breastfeeding is a natural process, it doesn’t always feel like it comes naturally. Learning how to breastfeed can be difficult for both mother and child. Some new mothers feel ashamed at this, but it is actually very common; sometimes you both just need a little help to right process.

At RRH, we offer lactation counseling services with a Lactation Counselor. We are the 1st in Kern County in-hospital breastfeeding rates.
