Lactation consultants work with new and expectant mothers. Before a woman gives birth they will help her understand the breastfeeding process. Lactation consultants may also evaluate expectant mothers to determine if there are reasons to suspect there will be problems with breastfeeding their infant. They may be specifically responsible for working with women with high risk factors to help them be able to successfully breastfeed. Their objective is to provide guidance so that women can effectively breastfeed their babies.
Lactation consultants also provide information about a number of issues related to feeding infants. They may address things such as physical deformities that affect the infant's ability to nurse effectively. They may also teach women how to use breast pumps and other devices.
