We believe that we can accomplish this through providing information, education, evaluation and management.

Our Outpatient Breastfeeding Center is staffed by International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) under the direction of a expert physician who specializes in Breastfeeding Medicine. The Center is designed to assess and treat both mother and baby at the same visit and consultation is by appointment only.
