Breastfeeding Support Services

Many moms choose to breastfeed because of the health benefits it provides for their babies. While breastfeeding is nature's way of giving your baby the perfect nutrition, it's a learned skill that can require education, practice andsupport. Our lactation consultants are specially trained registered nurses who support and guide you throughout your breastfeeding journey.

Our free services include:

  • Prenatal breastfeeding classes: Prepare for your breastfeeding journey and enroll in these classes where you will gain a basic understanding of breastfeeding and learn about proper positioning, nutrition, pumping and storing milk.
  • Inpatient consultations with all nursing mothers
  • Pumping assistance/breast pump instruction
  • Follow-up phone call after leaving the hospital
  • Problem-solving, such as troubleshooting difficult feedings
