You have heard breastfeeding has many benefits for you and your baby. You may be wondering if breastfeeding is right for you. The Lactation Center at Baptist Medical Center East provides breastfeeding education and support to a mother before the birth of her baby and throughout her breastfeeding journey. Our lactation consultants support a family’s decision to breastfeed with evidence-based information given with a personal and caring touch.
Our services range from seeing all breastfeeding mothers daily while they are in the hospital, telephone support for concerns and questions that may arise once at home to specialized outpatient consultations. The Lactation Center’s retail, phone and outpatient services are available to any mother, regardless of whether she delivered at Baptist East or another facility.
Our lactation staff is available seven days a week, including holidays, for inpatients and for outpatient telephone calls. The Lactation Center is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday for the purchase of supplies and scheduled lactation consultations.
The Lactation Center is located on the first floor of Baptist East. It is on your right as you enter through the hospital’s main entrance. Please stop by and see our great selection of breastfeeding supplies. Pump rental is also available.
