For new mothers, breastfeeding is a natural way to bond with the baby and provide the vital nutrition newborns need. Like many aspects of having a baby, breastfeeding is an important skill to learn.
This clinic is available to all moms who would like to breastfeed and are interested in having a breastfeeding assessment performed by Kentucky Children's Hospital providers. During your visit, the baby will be weighed and examined and a physician and lactation consultant will work with the new mom to develop a plan to meet her breastfeeding needs.
Monday - Friday 12:45 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.
