Lactation Services

At The Children’s Hospital at Saint Francis, our goal is to provide every new mother and baby the necessary support to have a successful breastfeeding experience. While the birth of your baby is very exciting, we understand it can also be somewhat overwhelming. While it’s true breastfeeding is easy for some, it often requires patience, education support and care for other moms.
 
Our International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) are here for you and are available to guide you through this time, as well as provide the education, support and care you need. If you would like a consult from a Lactation Consultant, your nurse can request one to come and assist you.
 
Outpatient appointments with  Lactation Consultants are also available. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 918-494-MILK.​
