Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding forms a unique bond between mom and baby, but it sometimes comes with difficulties. Ascension's breastfeeding services can help.

About Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding is a bonding experience that provides your baby needed nutrition while helping you both both avoid future health problems, including cancer and diabetes. However, breastfeeding doesn't come naturally to all mothers. In these cases, we provide complete, personalized support for mom and baby.

Even before you give birth, our support groups, classes and one-on-one consultations can give you expert tips for breastfeeding during your baby's first three months. We can assist with issues such as latching difficulties, soreness and milk production, and can answer any other questions.

Sometimes when babies are sick or arrive earlier than expected, their mothers do not produce enough milk. In these cases, donor milk is available from pre-approved donors. Additionally, we offer breast pumps for rent or purchase.

Every mom and baby are different. At Ascension, our goal is to help you both have the most fulfilling experience possible.
