Whether you are gathering information to help you make an informed decision about how you will feed your baby, or are looking for resources because you have already made the decision to breastfeed, our staff is here to support you.
While you are staying with us, know that you will be in good hands. All nurses receive specialized training in breastfeeding. Many nurses are also Certified Breastfeeding Counselors (CBC), pursuing advanced knowledge about lactation management. Should the need arise for additional breastfeeding support, our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) are here to help.
After you are discharged, our IBCLCs can be contacted through our Breastfeeding Warm Line. They are available to address breastfeeding questions and concerns and to schedule outpatient appointments, if necessary.
