Lactation Services

A member of the lactation team will visit you during your hospital stay to answer any of your questions and offer proper breastfeeding techniques and support. All mother/baby nurses are trained to support your breastfeeding decision and can assist you with feedings.

After you arrive home, a member of the lactation team will contact you to see if you have any questions or concerns. We are also available anytime after you leave the Hospital, on an outpatient basis or by telephone. To make an appointment, call (331) 221-5433.

We also rent and sell breast pumps and accessories.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children ages two to 14, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Many times, not using seatbelts or improperly used car seats are to blame.

Make sure that your car seat is properly installed by a certified car seat safety technician at any of these nearby locations.
