Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding provides your baby with a strong nutritional start and helps with emotional development. Breast milk is an easily digested, perfectly matched nutrition source filled with antibodies that protect against infection. Breastfeeding also promotes bonding and contributes to a special, loving relationship with your newborn.

Through our onsite Lactation Center, St. Luke's offers a wealth of resources and support for mothers who choose to breastfeed. The Center is staffed by certified lactation consultants. They are available to provide one-on-one care, instruction and support for mothers during their hospital stay. Our lactation specialists at St. Luke's are so well respected that patients from other hospitals often seek their care and support. St. Luke's is proud to have an impressive 87% breastfeeding rate among its patients, surpassing the 75% national average.

Conveniently located within the Birth Care Suites, the Lactation Center also offers a variety of services and products, including nursing bras, breast shields and breast pumps, for before and after childbirth.

More on breastfeeding support, available on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

Join St. Luke's Spirit of Women today to take advantage of 15% off select breast pumps and nursing bras in the St. Luke's Lactation Center. In addition to useful health information and invitations to special events, Spirit of Women membership gives you discounts at more than 100 area retailers including maternity clothing and shoe stores, spas, restaurants and more.
