Nutrition and Lactation Clinic
BRIGHTON HEALTH CLINIC FOR KIDS: NUTRITION & LACTATION CLINIC
A dietitian is an expert in dietetics; that is, nutrition and the regulation of diet. A dietitian manages their patient’s nutrition based upon their medical condition and individual needs and are regulated healthcare professionals licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional problems. A lactation consultant on the other hand specialize in the clinical management of breastfeeding including antenatal education, postnatal training, and attending to issues such as over-supply, under-supply, soreness, positioning, etc.
There is often a symbiotic relationship between breast-feeding and nourishment where one can impede or impact the other and vice versa. At BHC kids our joint dietetics and lactation clinic has the advantage of simultaneously addressing both breast-feeding concerns and nutrition concerns at the same time, aiding with continuity and efficiency of treatment.
