& LACTATION PROGRAM
We are proud of our extensive breastfeeding program.
While encouraging all new mothers who choose to nurse,
we understand that this is a very personal decision
affected by many social, emotional, and medical factors.
We support all mothers and families
whether they choose to bottle or breastfeed.
There is no “one right way” to nurse your baby.
All of our staff, from the front office to the providers,
have training or knowledge of breastfeeding;
culminating with our own physician assistant
and lactation consultant, Allene Troy.
Lactation consultants provide valuable advice.
Not only does Allene have a unique ability to counsel
mothers with regard to nursing; as a pediatric clinician,
she evaluates and follows infants and children, as well.
Among the few combined advanced practitioners and
lactation consultants, she can provide
services for the entire family.
We also provide pre-natal consults during which
you can talk with us and our staff about
our philosophy regarding breastfeeding.
We encourage all families to meet with us
within a few days after leaving the hospital
to ensure that your nursing starts off well.
Should any issues arise, you can meet with us promptly
so we may offer assistance and alleviate your concerns.
