Lactation and Breastfeeding Help

Lactation consultations are private outpatient appointments where mom and baby receive one-on-one breastfeeding support. Individual patient needs are addressed, such as latch comfort, engorgement, milk supply, growth spurts, effective pumping, weaning, and more.

Breastfeeding Support Group is a support system for breastfeeding mothers. It offers a group setting, but individual advice and attention from a lactation consultant is available. Participants will learn problem solving for engorgement, latching on, weaning, pumping, storing milk, growth spurts, etc.
