Lactation Services at UPMC Altoona

The lactation services staff of UPMC Altoona provides several different services:

  • We have board certified lactation consultants, who will provide prenatal information on breastfeeding at a monthly breastfeeding class.
  • The lactation consultants see you and your baby in the hospital.
  • A support system has been set up to help mothers and babies after they go home from the hospital, including a 24-hour telephone help line and outpatient visits for breastfeeding problems as needed and by appointment, as well as a Breastfeeding Support Group.
