St. Elizabeth's Medical Center offers a team of breastfeeding experts to all mothers who deliver at the medical center. Our nursing staff and a lactation consultant are available as you begin to breastfeed, which benefits mother and baby. Ask your nurse for information about scheduling a consultation.
Prenatal Breastfeeding Class
Learn about the value of breast milk for your infant during this two-hour class. Other topics covered include practical tips on the "how to" and "whys," answers to frequently asked questions, and how to choose a breast pump. Come during your last trimester and bring a guest. Call us to schedule your class.
As a complement to the nursing staff, lactation rounds take place Monday through Friday by a board-certified lactation consultant for patients during their stay after the birth of their infant. Assessment, assistance, guidance and support are offered during a visit. Mothers in special situations such as prematurity or illness are given individual assistance as needed.
Appointments are available with a board-certified lactation consultant for prenatal concerns or if difficulties with breastfeeding arise. Call 617-562-5371 to schedule your consultation.
