I'm not sure which hospital you go to but Beaumont has a great lactation service. They will come to your room in the hospital and have follow-up help/care available. I'm due with a little girl in Oct too! Good luck.

This lady was very good. Her name is Denise Tononi at St. Joesph Hospital on Garfield in Clinton Twp. Call the birthing center for her extension. Good Luck!!!!

The lactation consultant I worked with isn't from the macomb area but she is amazing and will help you anyway. I can't remeber her name for the life of me but she works out of Sinai Grace hospital in detroit. I delivered my second son in pontiac and called her as soon as I got home. She walked me through EVERYTHING over the phone said give it a day and if I'm still having issues to come see her. There is a small charge to visit her in the hospital if you don't deliver there but I'm sure she'll do what she can over the phone for free.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!!
I had a lot of problems getting started with breastfeeding. I wasn't able to get my baby latched on at all for the first week. I gave up on the hospital staff. I had the help of a wonderful IBCLC - Suzie Scheiwe, and was able to nurse my baby.
Here is her contact info:

I did pay her to come to my home. If cost is an issue, please contact the La Leche League. The leaders will offer free support. I am a member of the North Macomb LLL.
