As a patient with us, you have access to a lactation consultant. Our consultant is available to you both during and after your pregnancy.

Some benefits of speaking with a lactation consultant during your pregnancy are:

  • Get answers to your general questions about breastfeeding.
  • Learn about the process of making milk for your baby.
  • Learn about your baby’s growth and development.
  • Learn more about how to breastfeed.
  • After your baby is born, a lactation consultant is available for breastfeeding support and for help in breastfeeding your baby.

Speak to your physician, resident or other health care professional about scheduling time to speak with our lactation consultant.
