Breastfeeding During Your Stay

Nursing your baby is a learned skill for both mother and infant, requiring time and patience. While many women are able to successfully breastfeed soon after delivery, some women need assistance to breastfeed their baby.

Our nurses, lactation educators and international board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) receive at least 32 hours of breastfeeding education along with annual update training. They're equipped to recognize, prevent and address breastfeeding problems with compassion and patience. They will help ease your transition from hospital to home by answering your questions about breastfeeding and working directly with you. Please call staff whenever you need help with breastfeeding during your stay!

We have breast pumps if you need one during your hospital stay. Please also refer to your New Beginnings booklet for helpful information about feeding your baby.

Our lactation support staff is also available to help families in the neonatal unit, the pediatrics unit, and lactating moms who may be admitted for other medical issues or tests.
