Breastfeeding / Postpartum

Breastfeeding is a healthy, natural biological process, and we empower women by guiding and supporting them as they feed their babies.

Each of the Guiding Star Project centers each offer breastfeeding support services, either through the services of a certified lactation support person or through resources to guide women to local lactation consultants. Each center also offers a quarterly breastfeeding class.

All of our centers provide resources for women seeking support in their postpartum period. Some of our centers provide postpartum support in the form of meal trains, rent and utility assistance, milk sharing, and emotional health counseling for women experiencing postpartum depression or processing birth trauma.
