Breastfeeding Support

At Cone Health, we’re dedicated to supporting you as you navigate the journey of feeding your baby. If you’ve chosen to breastfeed your baby, it can help with your breastfeeding success to have a go-to resource along the way. Let US be that resource!

Lactation Consultants at Cone Health

Any breastfeeding mother can benefit from meeting with a lactation consultant, and particularly anyone who’s running into issues with breastfeeding. Working with a consultant vastly increases the chances that a mother will be able to continue breastfeeding successfully.

Inpatient Consultants

While you’re in the hospital after your baby is born, we have a team of about 15 lactation consultants dedicated to helping you get a strong start with breastfeeding. If your child spends time in the NICU, we have three NICU-specialized lactation consultants to help you navigate the unique challenges that come with breastfeeding an infant while they’re in that environment.

Outpatient Consultants

We also have two lactation consultants available to meet with breastfeeding mothers at two separate outpatient locations. Our lactation consultants can help address a range of issues, including: 

  • Difficulty with baby’s latch
  • Low/high milk supply
  • Infant weight loss/gain
  • Issues with pain while nursing
  • Pumping questions and concerns
  • Navigating mastitis

Our lactation consultants are located at the below locations. To schedule time with one of them, please reach out to them directly using the number below. (Appointments can be made in person or by video. Telephone counseling, using the numbers below, is also available.)
