We offer extensive support for breastfeeding from all our staff, including our lactation consultant.
Lactation consultants are professional breastfeeding specialists trained to teach mothers how to feed their baby. They:
- Help women who experience problems breastfeeding, such as painful nursing, latching difficulties, and low milk production
- Lend women breastfeeding equipment (like breast pumps) and teach them how to safely store expressed breast milk
- Help women who wish to continue breastfeeding after returning to work or school
How to Connect
Our lactation consultant/dietitian offers appointment-based care, teaches individual prenatal breastfeeding classes, and also works at the weekly Well-Baby Drop-In alongside an early childhood educator.
