We advise you to always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions regarding the health or medical conditions of you and your child. Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from your doctor or other qualified healthcare provider because of something you have read on the Website.

Consultant Qualifications. Your medical care is solely the responsibility of you and your Consultant(s). All Consultants available through the Services represent that they have degrees, licenses and/or certifications, as applicable, in the areas of newborn care, maternal care, breastfeeding, or other fields of perinatal care.

However, we are not responsible for credentialing Consultants, we make no representation regarding the accuracy of Consultants’ credentials, and we expressly disclaim any liability for fraudulent credentials or claims by Consultants.
