Our Services

Prenatal Breastfeeding Class

We recommend this class to all pregnant women who wish to learn more about breastfeeding. You will learn the basics of breastfeeding, what to expect during the beginning days and what support resources are available after you learn the hospital.

Inpatient Visits

Following the birth of your baby, our lactation consultants will answer any questions you may have and will help educate you on how to best meet your breastfeeding goals. A lactation specialist will visit you during your hospital stay.

Outpatient Visits

If breastfeeding questions or concerns arise after you return home, our specialist can help with any breastfeeding challenges you may face, including latch on difficulties, engorgement, and low supply.

Our mission is to provide you with the help you need to reach your breastfeeding goals.

Breastfeeding Support Group

One of our lactation specialists does a weekly weigh in and answers any breastfeeding questions. You'll be able to talk to other moms who are breastfeeding and discuss similar experiences. Our  breastfeeding support groups meet weekly:

  • Tuesdays, 10-11 a.m. at Allen Hospital (3rd floor - OB Classroom A)
  • Thursdays, 4-5 p.m. at Prairie Parkway (1st floor - Conference Room 1)

Got questions? Contact us or leave a message at (319) 226-2229, ext. 2, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
