Our practice is very supportive of mothers who choose to breastfeed. We know that new mothers breastfeeding for the first time have many questions and may need additional support to be successful in breastfeeding their newborn infant.
Since our breastfeeding educator is also a pediatric nurse practitioner, she is licensed and certified to examine your infant prior to the consult. If she finds any concerns regarding your newborn’s physical exam or your infant’s weight she will consult your baby’s physician at the time of your consult.
Dads are always welcome and their involvement is encouraged because their support is important for mothers to be successful in breastfeeding.
