Breast-feeding may be natural, but it is still a learned process that doesn't come naturally to every new mommy. In the beginning, breast-feeding can be challenging, and the experience is different for each person. However, the more relaxed and confident you feel, the more successful breast-feeding will be for both you and your baby.
Children's Physicians is proud to have a certified lactation consultant available to help families. Erin Loucks, MD, FAAP, IBCLC, RLC, is an internationally board-certified lactation consultant who works with residents and medical students, teaching them techniques to assist moms in the breast-feeding process. She will also see moms and babies on a referral basis in the Children's Physicians, Dundee office for breast-feeding issues on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
