Breastfeeding is a beautiful and natural experience for parents and their children, but the reality is often more complex than anticipated. Most parents find the presence of a calm and supportive expert in the field is essential to their success.

- Parents feel uneasy about breastfeeding and need reassurance
- Infant refuses to latch
- Parents have concerns about milk supply - too little or too much milk
- Breastfeeding is painful
- Infant is experiencing low or slow weight gain
- Parents have been told to they may need to feed formula
- Parents have received conflicting advice on breastfeeding
