Whoever said, “It’s no use crying over spilled milk,” probably didn’t breastfeed and pump that liquid gold. Breastfeeding, while natural, is still work. Just like during pregnancy, you still have to ensure you get the proper nutrients for your body and your baby. There are also times when babies don’t latch, or you experience pain. Don’t panic! This is NOT to deter you from your breastfeeding goals! Along with some of these tricky and challenging moments come many benefits and bonding moments full of pure sweetness. Not to mention, you don’t have to do it alone! You can get help from a certified lactation consultant, an expert in breastfeeding, at the Breastfeeding Center of Pittsburgh.
About Breastfeeding Center of Pittsburgh
In the 1990’s Dr.Nancy Brent worked in the department of Pediatrics at Mercy. She had the wonderful opportunity to pursue a program that spoke to her heart. She was passionate about breastfeeding, and with excitement, she created and directed The Maternal Infant Lactation Center. This program is now known as the Breastfeeding Center of Pittsburgh.
Their goal from day one was to train pediatric residents in breastfeeding support and the promotion of its benefits. Hence, they could achieve certification from the International Board of Lactation Examiners.

They use their education, support, and resources to uplift breastfeeding mothers in their community to battle the misinformation and even hostility mothers receive about breastfeeding.
