A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Angela, mother of a toddler and now a newborn, came to MilkWorks to use the free drop in weigh station on a Sunday afternoon after her pediatrician raised concern that her baby, Jonas, was not gaining enough weight. Angela was in tears, unsure of what to do. She was able to see a lactation consultant at MilkWorks the next morning. After her appointment, Angela said, "I feel like my lactation consultant really listened to my concerns and was able to give me some pointers on how to increase Jonas' weight. She was so encouraging and nonjudgmental. Most importantly, she helped me feed my baby in a way that works for our family."
