for All Lactating People.
Nowadays, we can do EVERYTHING online. We can buy almost anything, pay bills and other banking, earn degrees, socialize, and probably a million other things (literally sitting on my laptop doing my VIRTUAL JOB as I write this).
Now you can even get breastfeeding support online, all in the comfort of your own home. Heck, I totally did it. I took the virtual prenatal breastfeeding class before I joined the Successful Breastfeeding team and I was so glad I did. I had access to ALL the information on my phone, which I accessed multiple times while I was still in the hospital after having my son. Because let’s be real, I wasn’t going to keep paper notes or pamphlets from an in-person class close by while in the hospital, but my phone was never far away. Okay, so the battery may have died and I might have lost it a lot in the beginning but I swear it still never got that far away.

Successful Breastfeeding is helping lead the way in telehealth lactation services, currently offering so many different resources (all virtual, of course) including support sessions or consults, prenatal and back to work classes, tons of blogs and podcasts full of expert tips, community support, and even a monthly membership to get access to exclusive content helpful from bump to weaning.
*If I was talking to you directly, I’d probably be out of breath from that last sentence. It’s kind of a lot.
It’s been a long journey that all started with Kelly Maher, founder and owner of Successful Breastfeeding. In this episode on the podcast, she tells us the story of how it all happened. How she managed to create her own company with a team of lactation experts, interns, and an assistant to help women all over.
If you’re even the tiniest bit hesitant to invest in virtual breastfeeding support, but wanting to learn HOW and WHY it works just as well (if not better) than an in-home visit, this story is for you. Kelly explains exactly when and how she realized virtual support not only worked for her, making it possible for her to support more mothers than ever before, but also all the ways it could be a better option for mothers. I was personally sold at the part where you can stay in your pajamas, on the couch, in the comfort of your own home... Do I really need to go on? Those things sounded tempting before a baby, but so much more now that I have one. There’s actually a bunch of other reasons to convince you but I can’t spoil all the fun or else you won’t want to listen (and you totally should!).
Even if you simply want to hear an inspiring story about a mother who learned how to support herself and her children through really tough times and came out on top like the boss that she is, this episode is for you, too. Her story is a beautiful example of how hard parents are willing to work to support their families and she managed to do it by supporting other families as well. If that isn't a tear-jerker, I don't know what is.
Okay, okay. Go listen. Enjoy. And then come back to comment below what else you'd like to hear in our podcasts.
My name is Kaitlyn and I'm one of the team members at Successful Breastfeeding. Before I had my son, I signed up for the prenatal class and got SO MUCH HELP as a client. Then I fell in love with the community, saw all of the moms and babies Successful Breastfeeding was able to help, and practically begged to work for them. Now I'm the keeper of the things, professional commiserater, AND working on becoming a certified lactation counselor. For real though, I love working for this company because I get to work from home, be with my son, AND help women with their breastfeeding journey. Get virtual breastfeeding support when you need it and your back to work support when it's time to go back. Your breastfeeding journey is the #1 priority here.
