have a a friend who had first baby a few weeks ago and is in need of support ASAP. I have given her the LLL site, phone number and meeting times/dates.....what other support is there in SD?<br><br>
she delivered at UCSD birth center (?) and her ped is "dr. crow" , and she went to Milkmaid At Home. Thoughts on them?<br><br>
what kind of BF-reputation does dr. crow have?<br><br>
thanks mamas-- this is a dear friend from college, I am in malaysia and I (and she) don't want this rough start to send her down the formula road.....<br><br>
what she needs I think is someone to sit down with her at her house (i have inctructed her to lay in bed topless) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> but i am way too far to do that for her.<br><br>
thoughts? resources?

SD is big. Give us a more exact location.<br><br>
Maybe someone can take her to LLL or even stop by if it's not too far and she'd be open to that.<br><br>
I don't have a ton of bandwidth or I'd offer more.<br><br>
Sharp Mary Birch has a walk-in breastfeeding store/center where she could get some help.<br><br>
She could also call the midwife on duty at UCSD anytime and tell her she needs Bfeeding help. They are huge on nursing there and will point her in the right direction.

LLL in SD is extremely active and has a warmline that takes calls all day long and into the evening. It is staffed by leaders and can offer your friend support, advice, and the names of lactation consultants as well. The warmline and all of LLL services are free, but the lactation consultants do charge a fee. For a momma needing assistance, though, an LC visit is worth every penny.<br><br>
Please encourage her to contact LLL as soon as she can. They are very helpful and supportive.<br><br>
What a wonderful friend you are doing all of this for her from so far away. she is blessed to have you.<br><br>
