Lactation Services at Methodist Women's Hospital
We help you and baby get a healthy start with breastfeeding
A mother's milk has all the nutrition a new baby needs to stay healthy and thriving. You and your baby can also enjoy the benefits of breastfeeding, including a very close and special mother-baby relationship. Regardless of whether a baby is fed by breast or bottle, we support your choice and offer various programs to help you get off to a healthy start.
Support and encouragement for breastfeeding
We are breastfeeding friendly - promoting the benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby. The environment at Methodist Women's Hospital is totally supportive of a woman’s desire to breastfeed. Each hospital room is equipped with a refrigerator for breastmilk storage and our on-site certified lactation consultants are ready to help answer your questions and work through any challenges.
