Whether you choose to breastfeed or bottle-feed your newborn is your decision. But, we encourage you to at least try breastfeeding—there are many health benefits for both you and baby. Our certified Lactation Specialists are available to provide basic guidance or specialized support both while you and your baby are in the hospital and after you are home. Our Mother’s Boutique (3rd floor of the hospital), has a variety of items for sale including breastfeeding supplies and other items for new mothers.
