Lactation Support Group
We know it’s not always easy for mom or baby to get the hang of breastfeeding. Sentara Albemarle Medical Center now has a certified lactation consultant whose focus is on educating parents about the benefits of and best ways to ensure successful breastfeeding. This free service is available to all new moms who give birth at Sentara Albemarle Medical Center. Breastfeeding education sessions are also held twice a month for any mother wishing to learn more about breastfeeding their newborn.
And, Lactation Links of Sentara Albemarle Medical Center offers Baby Café, a monthly informal support group for nursing mothers.
For more information about our lactation services, please feel free to call the Lactation Links office at 252-384-4745.
