    Breast-Feeding - Planning to Breast-Feed

    With proper planning, preparation, and support, most women are able to breast-feed successfully.

    At your prenatal visits, talk to your doctor or midwife about your plans to breast-feed. He or she can help guide you through the planning and get you started after the baby is born. You may also be referred to a lactation consultant.
