Breastfeeding and the Lactation Clinic

Lactation services at DHMC are provided by a group of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. These specially-trained nurses are able to provide extra breastfeeding support for mothers of full-term newborns, premature infants, hospitalized infants and older babies with breastfeeding challenges.

All of our staff understand that breastfeeding is important to families, and are eager to support your decision to breastfeed.

During your stay, our nurses and lactation consultants can answer your questions and help you:

  • Learn how to breastfeed comfortably
  • Gain confidence
  • Learn the signs that tell you that your baby is eating well

After going home with your baby, you may come back to meet with a lactation consultant if needed.

  • Call the Lactation Clinic at (603) 650-6159 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Our lactation consultants will collaborate with your and/or your baby's care providers as needed.
  • We are available for telephone consultation for breastfeeding issues.
  • We are happy to discuss your breastfeeding issues, and we can provide you with support and community resources.
