Why chose Nourish?
The decision to breastfeed your baby is one of the most important choices you’ll ever make. But if you’re like most mothers the decision to breastfeed will be the easiest part of your journey. Breastfeeding is beautiful but it doesn’t always come naturally and can have challenges that are often unexpected. When new mothers experience difficulties they often feel like they’ve failed. Many lactation practices focus on crisis management. For that reason families often presume they don’t need lactation services unless they’ve hit rock bottom. What if you could avoid all the unknowns? What if you had a roadmap for success? At Nourish our purpose is to empower families with the wisdom to embark on their breastfeeding journey with confidence. We do this by providing the Quad Cities with evidence based breastfeeding support through prenatal breastfeeding classes, group clinics and private consultations.
