Yasline Lent was full of joy after giving birth to her son.
Until it was time to breastfeed him.
"He doesn't want to latch on, he's crying, I don't know what's going on," she explained. "I was ready to give up...I broke down. I cried."
Frustrated and discouraged, Yasline posted a plea for advice on social media. Two friends directed her to the Baby Café.
San Antonio's Baby Café is a support center for new moms and dads. The main focus here is helping women like Yasline initiate breastfeeding by meeting with a lactation consultant.
"I felt like there was a weight lifted off my shoulder," said Yasline. "They helped me figure out a way to breastfeed him without it being too much...I don't know what I would have done."
Friday, the Baby Café celebrates four successful years in San Antonio. The center is celebrating by welcoming people they've served and giving them a platform to share their success stories.
Trish Ghazali was one of those women.
"Coming here on almost a daily basis for a while was incredibly beneficial. Just to have someone understand," she said.
More than 3,000 women feel the same way. There is a 97 percent success rate, meaning 97 percent of visitors are able to initiate breastfeeding after a trip to the cafe.
Additional resources for baby CPR, nutrition, and post-partum depression are also available to new parents.
These services are free. The only thing the center asks for is help spreading the love.
"This center is here for the community," said Jennifer Herriott, the assistant director for Metro Health. "Please spread the word. And let moms in your community know that we're here and we're here to serve them."
