Breastfeeding Support For You and Your Baby

Breastfeeding is natural, but it doesn't come naturally for most women. Take comfort in knowing that professional, compassionate support from a highly qualified lactation consultant is just a click or call away. No need to pack up baby and drive anywhere for help - we come to you!

Can a Lactation Consultant Help Me?

If you are hoping to breastfeed, we urge you to create an active plan for breastfeeding. Just as you pick a pediatrician as your expert in normal medical oversight of your baby, and in case of illness or emergency, we recommend having a Phoenix Family Birth lactation consultant that you trust on your team as your expert in normal breastfeeding support, and in case challenges or questions arise.

 

You can benefit from a lactation consultant if...

  • You are pregnant and planning to breastfeed.

  • Your baby is having a difficult time latching to your breast or the latch is too shallow. 

  • There is pain when you breastfeed.

  • Your baby is not gaining enough weight.

  • You have concerns about your milk supply or you are wanting to avoid supplementing with formula.

  • Your baby has jaundice.

  • Your baby is in the NICU. 

  • Plugged ducts, mastitis, or thrush.

  • History of lactation challenges or breast surgery.

  • Pumping questions, returning to work.

How Can I Meet My Lactation Consultant?

Your Phoenix Family Birth lactation consultant will provide breastfeeding help across the Phoenix area in a variety of settings. 

 

Home

Your lactation consultant will provide a one hour visit in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Perfect for prenatal planning and ongoing breastfeeding help.

Hospital (including NICU)

While most Phoenix hospitals have lactation consultants on staff, their availability may not suit your needs, and they do not provide individual follow-up care. Your Phoenix Family Birth lactation consultant can visit you in the hospital to help you establish a great breastfeeding relationship, and can follow up with you via phone, email, or in-person support.

Our Office

Take our comprehensive breastfeeding class which covers all of the basics of breastfeeding through the first year. We also offer a walk-in clinic once per month for weight checks, latch assessments, pumping questions, or concerns about medications/diet. Please see our calendar for more information.
