About Expressions! Lactation Services
Vision: We see breastfeeding as the normal way to feed a baby and young child. Breastfeeding will be free of judgement in any situation. Every family will have the utmost knowledge and support from medical staff, family, and friends when it comes to her feeding decisions. For some families this may mean exclusive breastfeeding, breastfeeding with some supplementation, or even breastfeeding on a very part time basis.
Mission: It is our mission to provide breastfeeding/nutrition education and support to mothers and families. We have a variety of services to meet the needs of each individual family and circumstance. Our goal is to help every family breastfeed as long as they desire, as well as to provide mother and family optimal nutrition and health throughout their lives.
