For patients, breastfeeding can be an emotional topic.

It’s often framed as a natural skill that breastfeeding parents and babies somehow magically know how to do after birth — but honestly, that’s not always the case.

While some breastfeeding parents — and babies — pick up this skill quickly, it isn’t always easy. Sometimes, support is needed to ensure breastfeeding works for both of them.

This leads us to the question: As a primary care nurse practitioner, what knowledge and resources do you need to support families choosing to breastfeed?

Lactation Consultants and Primary Care Nurse Practitioners

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month. This week, we're talking with Joanna Kreyling, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), pediatric nurse practitioner, and clinical director at Nest Collaborative. In our interview, we explore:

  • Who lactation consultants are and how they help families
  • When you might want to refer your patients to them
  • And some important pearls and pitfalls to watch out for
