Fairview Red Wing Medical Center gets lactation designation
Last year, nearly 90 percent of women who delivered their babies in Red Wing breastfed, said Ann Beckman, a certified lactation consultant at Fairview Red Wing Medical Center.
While it seems that breastfeeding is something that would come naturally to both mother and baby, it does have a learning curve, Beckman said.
"The first couple of weeks are the most challenging," Beckman said. "Once both the mother and the baby know what they're doing, its much easier."
