Lactation Services

 

Lactation Services

We are trained to help families on their breastfeeding journey.

Our providers have received extra training in the support of families on their breastfeeding journey. Breastfeeding protects against a variety of disease and conditions in infants including diarrhea, respiratory infections, type 1 and 2 diabetes, lymphoma, leukemia, and Hodgkin’s disease, childhood overweight, obesity and many more.

There are also maternal health benefits to breastfeeding such as decreased postpartum and menstrual bleeding, a quicker return to pre-pregnancy weight, and a decreased risk of breast and ovarian cancers.lactation_rocker
