Do you need a little help with breastfeeding?  New moms in the Seacoast, NH area are lucky to have many ways to get breastfeeding help.  My clients enjoy having personal, private breastfeeding help in the comfort of their own home.  Let's face it, it's hard to pack a baby up and get out of the house!  But, besides hiring a lactation consultant to come to your home, there are lots of great options in the Dover and Portsmouth, NH area to get together with other new moms and babies and to also have your questions answered by lactation counselors.
