SimpliFed provides tele-lactation and nutrition support to allow new moms to receive care from the safety of their own homes. Today, we’re dealing with greater challenges as we navigate a world changed by social distancing. SimpliFed wants to make it easy for moms to get the lactation and nutrition support to help them reach their breastfeeding goals or help them understand different options available to them if breastfeeding isn’t working for them.
