Breastfeeding Help for New & Expectant Moms
At Swedish Medical Center, we respect every mother's right to choose whether to breast or formula feed her child(ren). However, we support the exclusive breastfeeding initiatives created by the Joint Commission, World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics. That's why you will find extensive lactation support from our highly experienced nursing team and dedicated lactation consultants.
Weekly Breastfeeding Support Group for Nursing Moms
This drop-in support group is offered to breastfeeding moms every week. In this group setting, moms have the opportunity to meet with a lactation consultant, have their babies' weights checked, receive reassurance or get advice about a breastfeeding problem, and meet other breastfeeding moms.
Breastfeeding Support Group is offered at no charge every Wednesdays at 10 a.m. in the second floor conference center. To track if your baby is getting enough milk when breastfeeding, please bring your baby hungry and plan on breastfeeding.
Registration: No registration needed for this drop-in support group, but please check back to this Web site or call 303-788-6251 at least 24 hours before attending to ensure no cancellations have been made.
