A breast-feeding business
The Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor shares office space with the Center for the Childbearing Year and the Doulas Care Program in a light-industrial office building improbably located behind a couple of houses on Brooks Street, in a residential neighborhood. Nevertheless, customers manage to find it: Robertson says a third of her business comes from walk-ins. Jayme Lanker, for example-she and her one-month-old daughter, Anya, are regulars in the nursing lounge. "This my second baby," she says, "and this the first bra I've had that fits."
Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor, 722 Brooks, 975-6534, center4cby.com. Mon., Wed., & Fri. 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
