Lactation Resources and Support at Woman’s 

Human breast milk is natural and is the perfect food for your baby. If you intend to breastfeed, you should decide before you go into labor. Woman’s is designated a Guided Infant Feeding Techniques (GIFT) hospital. We provide evidence-based practices to new parents about infant feeding and maternal and infant bonding. Human breast milk is exactly what your baby needs to grow. Breastfeeding can help prevent disease, promote healthy growth and development, reduce the risk of allergies and dental problems.
