If you plan to breastfeed, make the time to take her one-night course in breastfeeding via the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (on El Camino at University Avenue). It will save you hours of research and fully educate you on what to expect and how to plan ahead for a successful start to breastfeeding. As I say, "Labor is for a day, but breastfeeding is forever (or at least it can feel that way!)". She is also available for an office or home visit to assist you in getting your newborn to properly latch on (which is how you avoid pain). What's more, once she knows you, she can provide you advice by phone for free. She has solved more than one breastfeeding mystery ("Why is my baby vomiting so often?") for my family. Moreover, she is a dynamic, confidence-building individual who is a delight to interact with. Ironically, she used to be an exec in the high tech industry until she had breastfeeding problems and became an evangelist for practical planning so women could have successful breastfeeding experiences! I cannot recommend her enough to professional-minded women who want to start off their breast-feeding right. Don't be fooled by imitations--get Joanna!
