Breastfeeding mothers – are you having trouble with your newborn latching?

Is your milk supply low, or too much? Are your milk ducts blocked? Our new Outpatient Lactation service offers one-on-one consultations between new mothers and Certified Lactation Consultants for specialized support and guidance.

With a referral from a Pediatrician, Obstetrician or Primary Care Physician, mothers may schedule 30-to-90 minute appointments for private consultations. Appointments may continue as necessary.

Our lactation consultants can assist mothers with concerns about:

  • Sore Nipples
  • Pumping
  • Oversupply/Undersupply
  • Bonding
  • Nutrition
  • Painful Latch
  • Is my baby feeding enough?
  • and more...
