About Maternally Yours:

Maternally Yours, LLC has been providing lactation consulting services to the lower Delaware and surrounding Maryland area since 2021.

Kim and Jenn take pride in making all mothers feel empowered when breastfeeding. Their approach is non-judgemental, compassionate, and customized, recognizing a one size fits all approach does not define success. Together with Atracare, Kim and Jenn will be able to reach even more families prenatally and postpartum, setting them up for a successful breastfeeding experience.
