Breastfeeding and lactation support

baby-friendly logoBreastfeeding 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. Alongside our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, our maternity staff members are skilled as Certified Breastfeeding Counselors to help you in meeting your breastfeeding goals.

Breastfeeding support immediately after birth

Following the birth of your baby, our goal is to provide uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact and initiate breastfeeding within the first hour.

Continued support will be provided to you and your baby throughout your stay.
