Great Nutritional Start
At CHRISTUS Health we support your choice to breastfeed. Breastfeeding gets newborns off to a great nutritional start. The act of breastfeeding creates a unique bonding time for you and your baby. We offer a variety of tools to help you and your little become successful at breastfeeding.
Are you wondering if breastfeeding is right for you? Breastfeeding is a learned art. The more you know about breastfeeding before birth, the easier it will be to get off to a good start after your baby arrives. During our breastfeeding classes we will show you various tips, tricks and techniques and will cover a variety of topics including the health benefits of breastfeeding to both baby and mother, positioning and latch, how to know if your baby is getting enough, dad’s role in a breastfeeding family and much more.
Our birth center is staffed with lactation specialists. Prior to going home with your new baby, our specialists will come to your room and work with you one-on-one to support you at the start of your breastfeeding journey.
