Lactation consultants support all feeding choices
May 19, 2022
It’s no secret that breastfeeding is good for both babies and parents. So how come it can be so challenging? Part of the answer is you just don’t know what you don’t know. Lactation care can help you gain the knowledge you need to reach your unique goals.
ARC and Breastfeeding Success (BFS) work together to provide guidance to ARC parents seeking guidance about feeding their infant. BFS lactation consultants offer collaborative, evidence-based care to all ARC families. In-clinic advice and counseling are also available at ARC Center Street in Kyle.
Parent-centered lactation care with ARC and BFS
Breastfeeding Success supports families through parent-centered lactation care. Whether you choose to breastfeed, bottle-feed, or create your own combination of styles, what matters most is being empowered to make informed decisions.
A lactation consultant’s role is to provide tools and strategies that help families feed their babies successfully. This can mean being a breastfeeding cheerleader. Or, it can mean helping families use formula wisely, or end lactation safely. It’s not just about breastfeeding — it’s about your success. Parent-centered care invites everyone to understand a baby’s needs, the body’s abilities, and to be given support to navigate their own infant feeding journey.
Lactation care is a covered benefit
Lactation support is a covered benefit many parents don’t realize they have. BFS services are in-network with all major insurers so ARC families can feel supported, informed, and empowered to make the best feeding choices for themselves and their babies.
Talk to your ARC Pediatrician or Ob/Gyn to refer you to the services you need.
