*OUR PRACTICE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED*
Effective July 02, 2020 (still in effect as of 07/10/2020)

Dear Community that we are humbled and proud to serve, our primary responsibility is to protect the most vulnerable in our community, including those with underlying health conditions, the elderly, expectant and new parents, and those who have been recently hospitalized or who have come in contact with someone suspected of having or who are awaiting COVID-19 test results. We are temporarily closing for deep sanitization, team training, and acquisition of PPE. Our intent is to resume normal business operations including in-home and virtual lactation consultations and prenatal breastfeeding classes as quickly as possible. The everchanging climate we find ourselves in does not allow us to project when that time may be. We are asking that existing patients and patients awaiting an appointment please contact us at info@lactationconsultantsofcentralfl.com. Please include your first and last name in the subject line. Our team will be responding to your emails in the order in which they have been received. We will do our best to get back with you as soon as possible. We cannot wait to get back to assisting families in this beautiful but sometimes very overwhelming and challenging time in your family’s lives. Please check back for additional updates as they become available. NOTE: Updates are published to Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, first, as our website undergoes changes in preparation for our GRAND re-opening!

Best wishes and happy breastfeeding!

Congratulations on making the decision to breastfeed! By breastfeeding your baby, you will be giving your baby the absolute BEST start in life, as only YOU can! Whether you’re just beginning your breastfeeding journey, planning to breastfeed, or are an experienced nursing mom, we’re delighted you’re here and look forward to helping you reach your breastfeeding goals!

Women have been breastfeeding their babies since the beginning of time. Breastfeeding is “natural” and breast milk is the best first food for babies. But, breastfeeding is not always easy. Many moms struggle at some point during their breastfeeding journey, whether it is with perfecting their newborn’s latch, struggling with low milk supply, or battling thrush and mastitis. Breastfeeding, while natural, is a learned “art” and takes practice. If you are just beginning your nursing journey with your baby, remember, both you and your baby must work together to learn the basics of breastfeeding. Most importantly, know you are NOT ALONE! Breastfeeding support is available and most breastfeeding challenges can be overcome! We are here to help you in your journey.

If breastfeeding hurts, get help!
