Breastfeeding Support

Count on Cone Health for support and resources to help you breastfeed. Whether you give birth in Greensboro or Burlington, you’ll find classes, care providers and policies that promote, protect and encourage successful breastfeeding.

Both of our maternity locations in Burlington and Greensboro have achieved Baby-Friendly designations. This recognition means that Cone Health is adhering to the highest standards of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.

Breastfeeding-Friendly Maternity Care

You can feel confident that you’ll receive care that facilitates breastfeeding at Cone Health. That’s because both of our birth care centers follow practices that have been shown to improve breastfeeding outcomes, such as having your healthy newborn stay in your room throughout your hospital stay.

In 2016, Cone Health received a top, five-star North Carolina Maternity Center Breastfeeding-Friendly Designation from the North Carolina Division of Public Health.

Certified Lactation Consultants

Benefit from the knowledge and experience of Cone Health’s certified lactation consultants. Trust us to offer sensitive support, advice and assistance in the hours, days and weeks after your little one arrives. You’ll get one-on-one help that addresses your specific questions and concerns.

Breastfeeding Classes
