Lactation Support


We are here to support you on your breastfeeding journey. We recognize that every family’s journey is different and unique. We are committed to helping you meet your personal goals, while creating a rewarding and positive experience for both you and your baby. Our team provides support and resources to individuals who want to breastfeed/chestfeed that includes education before and after the baby is born. We also support gestational carriers, induced lactation and the LGBTQ community.

After you give birth and before you leave the hospital, our specially trained maternity nurses provide hands-on teaching. Certified lactation consultants are available when breastfeeding issues occur, such as latching difficulties, pain and low milk supply.
