Lactation Center

The experience of breastfeeding is special for many reasons, including bonding with your baby, perfect nutrition only you can provide, cost savings and health benefits for both mother and baby.

Keep in mind that breastfeeding is a learned skill. It requires patience and practice. For some women, the learning stages can be frustrating and uncomfortable. And some situations make breastfeeding even harder, such as babies born early or health problems in the mother.

The good news is that it can get easier, and support for breastfeeding mothers is available at our New Port Richey, Westchase and Palm Harbor Locations. Our lactation consultants are dedicated breastfeeding advocates who love to help new moms and babies.
