Low Milk Production

The research is clear: your milk is the best milk for your baby, and it is the ideal food for your baby's first several months. However, some women have an ongoing problem producing milk.

The good news is that low milk production can usually be reversed, depending upon the underlying cause. For any issue with your newborn, turn to the experts of Jefferson's Childbirth Program/Parent Education, who will help you find the best solution for you and your baby.
