Breastfeeding has to be learned and many women encounter difficulties at the beginning. This is completely normal. After you deliver, a lactation consultant will visit your room to offer education and lactation support.
Our highly skilled team is made up of all Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC’s).
After you leave the Hospital, you are welcome to call South County Health’s Warm Line, staffed by nurses and lactation consultants who are available for support. Call the Warm Line at 401-788-1226 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if any questions or concerns arise about nursing or about you or your baby’s health.
Our Lactation Consultants run a busy office visiting with prenatal and postnatal patients who are looking for more education or support around lactation. These patients may seek an appointment with our consultants regardless of which hospital they give birth. Appointments can be made by calling 401-788-1226.
Parents with newborns are encouraged to join South County Health’s New Baby Group, a casual, social setting for conversation and education on a variety of topics, including breastfeeding, baby sleeplessness, colic, parental sleep deprivation, postpartum stress, and more. The group is led by an IBCLC and an experienced OB nurse. Learn more >
