    Lactation Services

    If you're a new mother who's chosen breastfeeding as a way to both nourish and nurture your child, you'll receive breastfeeding assistance for yourself and medical care for your infant in a dedicated Lactation Clinic at the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

    Clinic specialists also work closely with inpatient lactation services to provide comprehensive lactation care.

    The service is staffed by a pediatrician who is board certified in lactation and an international board-certified lactation consultant. The support and care you'll receive helps to increase the amount of time you will breastfeed your baby and promotes a healthy breastfeeding relationship.

    Some issues you may encounter that are addressed by the lactation team include:

    • Breast pump education
    • Engorgement
    • Feeding twins and triplets
    • Ineffective latch-on or sucking

    • Painful nursing
    • Pediatric medical care
    • Other maternal concerns
