Surprisingly, something so natural doesn't come naturally to many of us! Successful nursing happens with an abundance of support and education. My favorite book is Latch by Robin Kaplan and the main person who got me through the tricky start was my husband with his support, encouragement, and faith that I could do it. Did you know doulas also support your breastfeeding journey? Immediately after birth, a doula will ensure baby is latching on correctly and getting that magical colostrum. She can also refer you to the right people if you need extra help. To prepare for nursing, follow these recommendations.
