SouthCoast Health: Clearing the Confusion on Breastfeeding

SouthCoast Health’s Nurse Practitioner Lactation Specialist Haley Dickerson wants to change the fact that only 29 percent of babies are breastfed during their first 12 months.

“Breastfeeding is a natural thing, but it doesn’t come natural to everyone,” Dickerson explained. “I can even speak from personal experience. I didn’t breastfeed my first child, because I had no experience in doing so. But when I became a nurse practitioner with SouthCoast Health and started working with our lactation consultants, I was able to successfully breastfeed my second child. The same can happen for any mom who has the right guidance.”  

To help guide mothers who are considering breastfeeding, Dickerson answers questions commonly asked in her practice. See the Q&A here.
