The majority of women begin breastfeeding at birth. Within the first 6 weeks, however, breastfeeding rates fall dramatically. To help women hang in with breastfeeding beyond the first weeks, we must first understand why they struggle. Learn what the research is saying and what you can do in your practice to help women meet their breastfeeding goals. IBCLC’s who specialize in the early weeks of breastfeeding will share case examples based on over 20 years of working with breastfeeding families.
