Lactation consultants support a healthy start

Breastfeeding helps give your baby a healthy start. Breast milk is full of antibodies to help your baby fight off infection. And, it has essential nutrients for your baby’s growth and development. We understand that breastfeeding does not always come easy. At Ascension NE Wisconsin - St. Elizabeth Campus Birthing Center, your care team helps you and your baby with breastfeeding.

Even after you leave the hospital, our lactation consultants continue to provide care and support. If you have questions or need breastfeeding help while you’re at home, call 920-738-2734.

Breastfeeding classes and support group

During pregnancy, we provide breastfeeding classes for expecting parents. After birth, our care team provides breastfeeding support. We also encourage you to discuss any concerns with your doctor or pediatrician.

Paying attention to your needs as a mother

Our goal is to support mom and baby with compassionate care. We help with discomfort during latching and pain while breastfeeding.
