Lactation Services

Breastfeeding forms a unique bond between mom and baby, but it sometimes comes with difficulties. Daviess Community Hospital's breastfeeding services can help. Breastfeeding is a bonding experience that provides your baby needed nutrition while helping you 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, we offer support group 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.

We are proud to offer breastfeeding services provided by two International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. They offer both inpatient and outpatient visits. Our team is also available by phone for any questions or concerns and provides a monthly breastfeeding support group free of charge. A breastfeeding class is available as part of the childbirth series. Clickhere for the 2024 calendar.
