BREASTFEEDING: IT'S ONLY NATURAL
Expectant parents often find themselves faced with many decisions. Let your choice to breastfeed your newborn be a natural conclusion. Not only will your decision to breastfeed influence the long term and short term health of your baby, but it will provide benefits to mom as well. "Any time before your baby is born is a good time to make the decision to breastfeed. To get breastfeeding off to a good start, the first to second hour after delivery is so important." said Meredith Mullican, Cannon County Nursing Supervisor and Certified Lactation Consultant. Have questions or concerns? Join us for a Prenatal Workshop scheduled Friday, July 20 at 2:00 p.m. at the Cannon County Health Department. Expecting your baby before August? Call the Cannon Health Department at 615-563-4243 and speak with our Certified Lactation Consultants. We are here to assist you and your family on this new journey.
