Breastfeeding may be natural, but it often feels anything but! Lactation counselors and consultants are trained to help moms around all things breastfeeding—and can even do at-home visits. Lactation consultants are board-certified professionals with years of training and 1000+ contact hours whereas lactation counselors have a few days of training and ~20 contact hours.
Maternal Mental Health Specialist
