New Insurance Guidelines For Breast Feeding Moms!

This is exciting news! 75 percent of moms start out breast feeding, but those numbers drop significantly within the first few weeks. Do these new guidelines mean those numbers will increase or at least stabilize? Only time will tell. This is also great news for lactation consultants or those considering it as a career.
