Some mothers find breastfeeding more difficult than they expected. It’s even more difficult when the baby is hospitalized away from the mother. But mothers can overcome most difficulties with instruction and guidance.
Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin recognizes the importance of breastfeeding to mothers and their babies. We offer breastfeeding support by certified lactation consultants at both our Milwaukee and Neenah, WI., hospitals. Our lactation consultants are available for one-on-one meetings with moms and babies.
The lactation consultants in Neenah also host a weekly breastfeeding support group called Mom’s and Milk Club.
We urge all moms who are pumping to watch the Hands on Pumping video from Stanford University, which shows how to get more milk with each pumping session.
