Listen to this article - Breastfeeding
Our staff understands the positive impact that breastfeeding has on infant bonding, as well as its proven nutritional value for babies. That's why we've designed a program and trained our staff at all levels to assist those of you who have chosen breastfeeding—before your baby is born, during hospitalization, and after you go home.
We offer a class to prepare you and your coach for this life experience. Topics covered include the physiology of lactation and the nutritional needs of both mother and baby, along with information on the support roles of your family, and doctors. For class details, click here.
In-hospital Breastfeeding Support
Our nurses, lactation consultants, and educators are available to assist you while you are hospitalized.
Newborn Feeding Center
We offer a breastfeeding center that is open four days each week by appointment only to provide an assessment and assistance for your newborn. The center is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, and is closed on Wednesdays. The center is located in our Family Care Center, 1175 East Arrow Highway in Upland. Private consultations are available by appointment.
We have found that the majority of the mothers who visit our Family Care Center have continued to breastfeed. We collect data to measure success and to help us respond to the needs of the community. No fees are charged for the initial visit. A nominal fee is charged for subsequent visits.
