Breastfeeding and lactation program
Our teams in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley include lactation consultants who are registered pediatric nurses and international board certified lactation consultants. We offer a wealth of experience and knowledge working with premature infants through toddlers. We offer support to breastfeeding mothers and their babies to help you have a positive and successful breastfeeding experience. Our staff also helps mothers who express their milk (remove milk from their breasts) for feedings.
Certified lactation counselors (CLCs), who are also registered nurses, are also available to help and support families.
