Breastfeeding While In the Hospital

Our trained nursing staff will help you get off to a great start breastfeeding your little one. Our nurses will provide you breastfeeding information and assistance while you are in the hospital. Lactation consultants are available for those occasional times when breastfeeding does not go as expected.

In-Hospital Lactation Consultations

If breastfeeding is not progressing after the initial hours of the normal baby sleep cycle, your nurse or healthcare provider can bring in a lactation consultant. The professional lactation consultant will help you set up an individual feeding plan that includes follow up for you and your baby. 

Breastfeeding At Home

When you first get home, it’s natural to have questions about everything from medications and breast pumps to what to do if breastfeeding is not going as expected. Feel free to call our automated Breastfeeding Helpline to speak with one of our lactation consultants. We also provide referrals to qualified agencies if needed.
