Breastfeeding Support FAQs

Who can benefit from breastfeeding support?

Both parents and parents-to-be can greatly benefit from breastfeeding support with our IBCLCs. Whatever your status, our IBCLCs are here to help parents through their breastfeeding journey.

Our experienced IBCLCs have provided breastfeeding support to parents who have had no problems breastfeeding their first baby but are having problems breastfeeding their second child. This is not surprising as all babies are different.

Our IBLCs have also provided breastfeeding support to new parents helping them navigate through their breastfeeding journey, answering questions, and advising on all sorts of issues. There is nothing we haven’t heard or seen. Don’t feel embarrassed or intimidated to talk to us. There are no silly or stupid questions.

How common is it for parents to experience breastfeeding issues?

Breastfeeding is a beautiful experience for parents and babies, but sometimes there are breastfeeding issues that make the experience difficult. Here is a list of the most common problems:

  • Breast Engorgement
  • Poor Breastfeeding Latch
  • Tongue Tie
  • Mouth Problems
  • Over or Under Milk Supply
  • Flat or Inverted Nipples
  • Nipple Pain
  • Nipple Confusion
  • Clogged Milk Duct
  • Mastitis (Breast Infection)

When is the best time to seek breastfeeding support?

You don’t need to wait to have your baby before seeking breastfeeding support. Early preparation and personalized breastfeeding education increase your chances of successfully meeting your breastfeeding goals.

How can online breastfeeding support help you?

Whether you’re a new parent, or you’re having another baby, online breastfeeding support is available via telehealth.

Nest Collaborative is a collection of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) who provide lactation counseling services via telehealth. Since 2018, we have been conducting online, video appointments (telehealth) to help guide parents through their breastfeeding journey.

Amanda Gorman, the Founder, is a parent of two and a Board-Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. She founded Nest Collaborative after experiencing the lack of available resources for nursing parents both professionally in her primary care practice and personally, as a parent who struggled to breastfeed.

Amanda brings a passion to Nest Collaborative to expand access to lactation counseling services via telehealth–breastfeeding support that is accessible, affordable, and preventive.
