About this Program

Breastfeeding support is available from our lactation consultant.

Lactation consultants are breastfeeding specialists who teach mothers how to feed their baby. They also:

  • Help with painful nursing, latching difficulties and low milk production

  • Provide access to breast pumps and teach mothers how to store breast milk

  • Help mothers who wish to continue breastfeeding after returning to work or school

Our lactation consultant is available by appointment and also provides individual breastfeeding classes. They also attend our weekly Well-Baby Drop-In alongside an early childhood educator.
