Breastfeeding Support

We are here to help you make feeding your baby a fulfilling and positive experience.  Memorial Hospital is supportive of your choice to breastfeed, and it is our goal to ensure that you and your baby have a head start in experiencing the natural benefits breastfeeding provides for both mother and baby.

Lactation Services

Rest assured that a mother's milk has all the nutrition needed to keep a baby healthy, and only very rarely is there a medical or physical reason that a woman cannot breastfeed her baby. 

Our on-site Certified Lactation Counselors are ready to help answer your questions and assist with initiating breastfeeding.  Our counselors give families practical techniques and support when learning how to express milk directly from the breast or into a bottle using a breast pump.  Our counselors also provide support and advice for any issues you may experience, including engorgement, sore nipples, sucking difficulties, latching, and promoting ample milk production.

BreastFeeding Friends (BFF) Peer Group

Everyone deserves a BFF. That’s why we’re offering a peer support group for new mothers.  All breastfeeding moms are welcome - no matter who your doctor is or where you delivered.
Get advice and resources and make lasting friendships with other moms who are going through similar joys and challenges. We’re here for you as you face the ups and downs of motherhood…because every moment matters.
 

What will BFF from MCH provide?

  • Resources on the benefits of breastfeeding.
  • Mother-to-mother support.
  • Free baby weight checks.
  • Help with basic breastfeeding challenges and questions.
  • Social support for young families.

Join us on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.  For more information, contact breastfeeding@mchiaurora.org
