Lactation (Breastfeeding) Support Services
Mothers who breastfeed their babies give them a healthy start in the world, and we encourage breastfeeding. During your stay in the hospital, breastfeeding support is provided by the nursing staff and a certified lactation consultant.
We also offer a help line for breastfeeding mothers (or pregnant women who are considering breastfeeding) to call with questions and concerns.

Oh Baby! What New Parents Need to Know
We hold this free class twice a year for new and expecting parents. Learn about typical newborn behavior, calming a fussy baby, creating good sleep habits and more. The next session will be fall 2013.
We offer a wide range of classes and special events for expectant parents, covering topics such as breast feeding, preparing for childbirth and infant and child safety. We also offer a “Sibling Class” for kids ages 3 to 10 who are looking forward to having a new baby brother or sister.
The adolescent and teen years are exciting times for kids and their parents, and a great time to empower teens to make healthy choices. Our Teen Health Center offers primary care and education to male and female patients ages 12 to 20 years old. With an on-staff women’s health nurse practitioner, we also offer expertise in the special health concerns of teenaged girls, such as menstrual cramps, migraine headaches and birth control.
