Breastfeeding and lactation support are a central part of our approach to maternity care. As a designated Baby-Friendly Hospital, White Plains Hospital is committed to helping new moms and babies be successful in their breastfeeding journey. Thanks to our expert team, women are guaranteed individualized care and breastfeeding support when they need it most.
Breastfeeding support immediately after birth
All of our maternity nurses are certified lactation counselors (CLCs) and can offer help with breastfeeding immediately after a baby is born.
In addition, our team of board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) offer hands-on support whenever a mom needs it. This encourages mother-baby bonding and provides the foundation for a successful breastfeeding experience.
Lactation support before and after discharge
Our lactation specialists are also available to provide support before delivery and after a mom and her newborn have gone home. We offer virtual lactation support and in-person consultations for new moms, staffed by our two nurse practitioner lactation consultants.
Call the lactation center at 914.681.2214 to schedule a virtual or in-person appointment.
