The Birth Center offers a wide variety of services to help assist new moms with the joy of breastfeeding.
Pre-natal breastfeeding class is encouraged prior to the birth to give you some basic information on the breastfeeding process and to feel more comfortable getting started. Certified Lactation Consultants will visit you during your hospital stay to help establish breastfeeding and to answer any questions that you may have. Early follow-up phone calls will be done to check on breastfeeding progress and to address any new questions or concerns. The lactation office phone number will be available for any questions or concerns that come up along the way.
After delivery we offer free Infant Weight Checks
to monitor your baby's progress. Starting in July 2010, you can come to a free weekly Breastfeeding Support Group for infant weight checks, answers to your breastfeeding questions and breastfeeding support from our Board Certified Lactation Consultants and others mothers.
If you need a little more assistance you can schedule a Breastfeeding Check-Up
with one of our certified Lactation Consultants. There is a small fee for this service and information can be provided for self submission to your insurance company upon request.
If you have any further questions or need to schedule an appointment, please contact one of our Lactation Consultants at 708-245-6116.
