Lactation Support Services

Also known as: Lactation Consultations

Learning how to breastfeed your newborn baby can sometimes be one of the hardest tasks you'll face as a new mom. But there's one helpful trick that can make all the difference: having an experienced, caring nurse to help you and your baby thrive, from the very beginning.

From help with nursing a premature infant to offering tips on keeping other family members involved, our experienced, board-certified lactation nurses are here to help you successfully breastfeed your baby.

Lactation consultations available before or after you get home

While you're a patient, your nurse or physician can refer you for a lactation consultation. These consultations can be especially helpful for mothers of infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Sometimes after you get home with your newborn, questions or problems come up. It's good to know that Providence lactation consultants are here to help you seven days a week. Outpatient lactation consultation is on a fee-for-service basis; check to see if your health plan pays for this service. However, all mothers are assisted regardless of ability to pay.
