Outpatient Lactation Services

Our lactation consultant is a registered nurse, board certified in breastfeeding, who provides support for new mothers while helping them reach their breastfeeding goals. She specializes in educating families and assisting them with any problems that may arise. She also monitors the baby's weight gain and breastfeeding success while communicating closely with the physicians to provide the best care.

Appointments can be made with the lactation consultant Monday through Friday. Call the pediatric clinic to schedule an appointment.

Services included:

  • Prenatal consultations by request
  • Prenatal breastfeeding class
  • Breastfeeding warm line for questions and guidance
  • Outpatient consultations for concerns with breastfeeding or breast pump instruction
  • Baby weight checks
  • Referral to lactation support groups in the community

Capital Region Physicians – Pediatrics now has a full-time licensed professional counselor. Counselors can be an ally through a tough diagnosis or an invaluable resource for a child’s mental health.
