Breastfeeding your baby will provide a lifetime of benefits to both you and your baby. Sometimes, especially in the first few weeks, you may need some help getting started. Beaumont's lactation consultants and counselors are available to answer questions, assist with feeding your baby while you are in the hospital, and address your concerns while you are breastfeeding at home.
Our lactation consultants and counselors are registered nurses, who are specially trained to help breastfeeding mothers with any concern or difficulty that may arise. Problems including, difficulty with latch, fussy or sleepy baby, nipple discomfort, engorgement, pumping and more can be addressed.
Once you leave the hospital, you won't be alone.
Support is available by phone or by appointment, even after discharge from the hospital. Contact one of our breastfeeding helplines listed below for assistance.
