Breastfeeding

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.

Additional Breastfeeding Support

Inspira offers a Breastfeeding Support "Warmline," where mothers can call to speak with a lactation consultant for help with breastfeeding issues, questions and problems.

  • For patients of Inspira Medical Centers Elmer and Vineland
  • For patients of Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill

Breastfeeding Outpatient Visits

In some cases, your best chance for success is to come in for a visit to see our lactation consultants in person. We currently accommodate outpatient appointments for all our maternity patients at Inspira Medical Center Vineland. To schedule an appointment, call (856) 641-8189.

Weekly Postpartum Support Groups

Baby Talk Tuesday is a virtual support group for new parents who are seeking support with various aspects of parenting including breastfeeding. To register, email batesv@ihn.org.
