Breastfeeding Center

Most health care professionals recommend breastfeeding as the best source of nutrition for your baby's first 6 months. About Breastfeeding

Breast milk contains appropriate amounts of carbohydrate, protein and fat, and provides digestive enzymes, minerals, vitamins and hormones that infants require. 

It also contains antibodies from the mother that can help the baby resist infections.

EvergreenHealth encourages breastfeeding, and our nationally-recognized Breastfeeding Center is here to offer you the help and support you need to have an enjoyable breastfeeding experience.

  • Soon after birth, when newborns are ready to feed, your labor nurse will help you and your baby get started with breastfeeding.  
  • During your hospital stay, the Breastfeeding Center's board certified lactation consultants are available for individual consultation to help you solve breastfeeding difficulties.
  • If you need additional help once you're home, the Breastfeeding Center offers both phone and in-person consultation.
