Breastfeeding Support for Moms

To help with mother-baby bonding, we offer comprehensive breastfeeding education and support in the comfort of your suite. All nurses who staff the labor and delivery unit help mothers and babies start breastfeeding within the first two hours of life. A licensed lactation counselor is available for new moms who need a little assistance with breastfeeding.

While it's a natural occurrence, breastfeeding doesn’t always come easily and may require some coaching. We offer inpatient lactation consultations with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). During your consult, the IBCLC can provide help with latching, feeding, increasing production, preventing and treating sore nipples, determining correct pump usage and sizing and much more.

For more information on breastfeeding or to schedule an outpatient consultation, please call our Breastfeeding Warm Line at Call407-303-7650.

Postpartum Care and Support

Your care continues long after the baby arrives. Your baby receives expert care from AdventHealth for Children pediatricians while you receive the continued support of your obstetrician, lactation consultant and nurses. We encourage mother-baby bonding and help you through those first hours of caring for and snuggling your newborn.

Support Group for New Moms

When you give birth, you become a member of a very special group: new moms. The Baby Bunch is now offered virtually as a weekly gathering for new mothers where you can support one another and share parenting tips, milestones, and joys.
