Lactation Support And Other Resources We Offer

Breastfeeding can be a beautiful experience.

It can also be an exhausting one, so it's important to know the best choice for you. 

At Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine in Raleigh, NC, our pediatricians are happy to discuss our services regarding lactation support, premature newborn care, newborn visits, educational and athletic physicals, as well as urgent sick care.

Our Lactation Support Services

The matter in which you choose to feed your newborn should be a private discussion you have before giving birth so that when the time comes, you and your support system are prepared.

If you decide to breastfeed, our team of pediatricians extends their support when navigating feeding your newborn by sharing the following services offered:

  • Lactation Consultant services—Leslie is a certified lactation consultant and a very important member of our team.
  • Prenatal visits—discussing your feeding options with us can provide clarity to any questions or hesitations you may have. When choosing to breastfeed, our pediatricians offer their knowledge on what you can expect during the initial days post-birth, as well as reassuring guidance.
  • First visits with your newborn—with a thorough examination of you and your baby, you can expect to develop a personalized plan for your breastfeeding goals.
  • Infant care—monitoring both you and your baby's health in the coming months to ensure proper health and growth.
  • Over-the-phone support—having a newborn is both an exciting and demanding time, so it's probable you'll have plenty of questions. Our team at Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine in Raleigh, NC, is more than happy to provide lactation support over the phone, as well as any general concerns or questions that you have, 24/7!

Preparing For Your Newborn

Even if you've breastfed before, every newborn is different, and that's why our pediatricians readily offer their expertise to establish the most gratifying experience for you and your baby. 

Most complications while breastfeeding can be solved with proper guidance, which is why our pediatricians at Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine encourage you to address your concerns as soon as they arise!
