Lactation Services

A better breastfeeding experience

At Prisma Health, we offer support and guidance for new mothers in deciding if breastfeeding is best for you and your baby.

Lactation consultants and educators are highly qualified and committed to helping you throughout your entire experience. A knowledgeable, considerate lactation specialist will be available to help you in the privacy of your room during your stay. After leaving the hospital, we offer a helpline to guide you through any challenges and, if necessary, our lactation specialists will schedule follow-up visits for additional assistance.
