Breastfeeding Support at Nuvance Health
New moms across New York’s Hudson Valley and Western Connecticut often look to us for breastfeeding support. Trusted providers deliver a broad range of services that help you learn what to expect and give you the confidence to overcome challenges. Highlights of the program include:
Trust lactation consultants:
You receive services from certified lactation consultants in convenient locations throughout the region. We typically visit moms in the hospital the day after the baby is born. And we are available by phone after you leave the hospital.
Lactation consultants share their knowledge with maternity nurses so you receive research-based breastfeeding support throughout your hospital stay. Some locations offer in-person breastfeeding consultations after hospital discharge. You can also read answers to breastfeeding frequently asked questions.
An obstetrician with additional certification in breastfeeding and lactation helps people with medical concerns impacting breastfeeding. These include a history of difficult breastfeeding, endocrine disorders, complicated breast surgeries, medication questions and more.
Donor milk program:
It often takes a few days for a mother's body to produce breastmilk. In some cases, a little longer. Donor milk can help meet your baby's nutritional needs until you can do so on your own.
