Breastfeeding is one of the most rewarding experiences a new mom can have, but it can also be one of the greatest challenges. It is extremely common for women and their babies to struggle with proper latching, issues of supply, and maternal discomfort. Lactation counselors can help overcome some of these roadblocks to a great breastfeeding relationship between you and your baby.
Wombkeepers is extremely unique in that we provide an in-house lactation counselor, Catherine Belonogoff, who rounds on all our patients in the hospital, providing breastfeeding support. She also hosts a weekly Weigh-In-Wednesday, where families can bring their babies for a weight check-in and obtain breast feeding help, as well as attend a support group with other new moms. There is no out of pocket cost for this service, it is simply billed to your insurance.
