PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER:
Welcome to Breastfeed Inc. This company was originally established in Savannah, Georgia in 2002, as a direct result of an identified need for support and
education of breastfeeding within the local community. To date, there are no other organizations offering the comprehensive support services of Breastfeed Inc. in this community.
Women and their babies are being discharged from hospital within 48 – 72 hours of delivery,
before the breastfeeding relationship is well established.
Research has shown that early support and assistance with
the initiation of breastfeeding has a positive influence on
the duration of breastfeeding. At Breastfeed Inc., we strive
to provide the highest quality, individualized support and
assistance to the mother and her baby in her own home, or on
site, as needed. All programs are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of the client.
The founder of Breastfeed Inc. is a Registered Nurse, with current Georgia licensure. She is also a nurse midwife who has practiced in South Africa and the United Kingdom, and has worked for more than 10 years with mothers and their babies.
She is also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
(IBCLC) since 1999, and has practiced as a Lactation Consultant in a local hospital in Savannah, GA for 3 years.
