Breast-Feeding - Planning to Breastfeed

With proper planning, preparation, and support, most women are able to breastfeed successfully.

At your prenatal visits, talk to your doctor or midwife about your plans to breastfeed. 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.
