Policy for COVID-19   Updated 3/14/2020 by Donna Bruschi

Breastfeeding is the best way to protect your baby or child during this pandemic. There is no evidence of COVID-19 being transmitted through breastfeeding. Appointments to help breastfeeding challenges are available 7 days a week.

  • Video chat is an under-utilized option. It is a completely safe and confidential way to get breastfeeding help. I recommend it for all families who need breastfeeding advice.
  • In my office, I have taken extra sanitizing measures. This option is low risk due to the nature of my services.
  • At your home, I wash my hands and wear gloves. Most appointments are "no contact" consultations, anyway. If you desire, I will wear a mask.

glamourmomThe astonishing thing about your breasts!

There are many great reasons to breastfeed your baby or child. Just like pregnancy, your body knows what to do and starts the lactation process. You may not realize how much there is to know until you have a problem. Then you may wonder..."What do I do now?" and "Who do I call?"

The even more astonishing thing about your Health Care Provider!

You may be surprised to learn that your OB/GYN, Pediatrician or other Health Care Provider may not be the best person to get breastfeeding information from. Most physicians receive only a small bit of education in breastfeeding when they go to school.

Biology + Practice + Experience = Breastfeeding
