Our staff provides ongoing support and guidance to breastfeeding mothers. They offer bedside assistance with feeding and positioning. Lactation consultants are available on a consultative basis for difficult feeding issues. In addition, they can also arrange for pump rentals.
All consultations are complimentary. Our lactation consultants can also answer questions about a variety of topics such as nutrition, prescriptions, returning to work, traveling and bottle-feeding.
Lactation services are available to all breastfeeding mothers at University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro.
Mothers who have questions after returning home are also encouraged to contact the lactation consultants.
