Breastfeeding is important for both new moms and their babies, which is why we provide lactation support in the hospital.
Breastfeeding Support at Rose Medical Center
At the hospital:
Early breastfeeding is a time for learning, and both mother and baby may benefit from some time with an experienced teacher. Our nurses are excellent resources for starting breastfeeding; however, if you need additional support, our Certified Lactation Consultants are available for assistance. They will help you learn effective positioning techniques, solve problems and guide you over the bumps on the road to breastfeeding success. For inpatient lactation support, call 303-320-2072.
After the hospital:
To support new moms after they've delivered, we have started an Outpatient Lactation Support Group. This group meets every Monday from 1 - 2 p.m. in 4500 E. 9th Ave., Goodstein Conference Room 3. To come to a meeting for helpful tips and conversation with our Lactation Nurse Consultant and other new moms, call 303-320-2072.
