Children’s Hospital & Medical Center provides certified lactation consultants who are available to provide education and support to mothers of hospitalized pre-term and full term infants. Our lactation consultants are available to instruct and teach you how to pump, collect and store your milk for use. They will also help you learn how to breastfeed your baby by assisting you with proper positioning and latching your baby correctly at breast. Additional support is provided once you go home through follow-up phone calls.
Our lactation consultants are also available to answer your questions about breastfeeding by phone or email. Email your questions and a lactation consultant will reply within 48 hours.
