Breastfeeding & Lactation Consultants
Inspira Health’s lactation consultants help women across South Jersey with breastfeeding issues, questions and problems.
At Inspira, we understand the importance of breastfeeding to families and the health of their children. We also understand that it isn’t always easy or possible for every woman.
Our Approach to Breastfeeding Assistance
Breastfeeding provides significant health benefits for both mom and baby. Our team provides new moms with breastfeeding education that helps them not only provide optimal nutrition, but also bond with their babies.
Because this is a learning process, we offer classes as well as one-on-one support even before you deliver.
The maternity care team at Inspira’s medical centers in Elmer, Vineland and Mullica Hill includes lactation consultants and nurses trained in breastfeeding to add to the support you receive from your obstetrician or midwife.
Added Support from the Breastfeeding “Warmline”
Inspira offers a Breastfeeding Support "Warmline," based at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill, where mothers can call for help with breastfeeding issues, questions and problems.
Why Choose Inspira for Breastfeeding Support
Inspira Medical Center Elmer is the first hospital in New Jersey and the Delaware Valley to earn the prestigious international Baby-Friendly® designation. It’s also the only maternity center in the region to offer water birth in a hospital setting. Inspira Medical Center Elmer’s maternity services received a national Women’s Choice Award, as well as the highest scores possible for maternity quality standards measured by Leap Frog. Inspira Medical Center Vineland is home to the region’s only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Deborah F. Sager Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
At Inspira, we believe childbirth should be celebrated in a home-like environment designed to foster a sense of peace and safety. Inspira offers private rooms in which families can stay from admission to discharge. They’re designed to feel more like home than a hospital, but still have all the safety and security access features for moms and babies. The family waiting area offers convenience and comfort for our patients and their families.
Inspira has partnered with Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children to provide neonatal, pediatric and emergency care for children. Teaming up with Nemours allows Inspira to offer an advanced level of pediatric specialty care to families. Access to Nemours Pediatric Care at Inspira is currently available 24/7 at Inspira’s medical centers in Vineland and Mullica Hill.
