    We love Breastfeeding here at the Birth Place. We have four Certified Lactation Counselors to help you successfully feed your baby. Our midwife, Stacey, will help you get off to a good start from the moment of birth. She is available to help you throughout your entire nursing relationship. And to provide social or drop-in support, Christine Clark and Jamie June are our Certified Lactation Counselors who lead a breastfeeding support group at the Birth Place every Friday from 10:30 – 12:30. We are all active with the Gallatin Breastfeeding Coalition as well as other regional and national breastfeeding organizations.

    Breastfeeding Support: home and office visits

    Breastfeeding Support is included in your care package with Birth Place. For families who have given birth elsewhere, we are happy to meet with you to help with latch, milk coming in, milk supply issues, etc. We have home and office appointments available. For all families we offer continuing care throughout the nursing relationship. Later visits often involve pumping and milk storage, creating a nursing plan for returning to work or school, nursing a teething baby, nursing a toddler, or weaning issues.

    Breastfeeding Support Group

    Stop on by any Friday between 10:30 – 12:30 for some great mother-to-mother breast feeding support. Older children are welcome. We have a fun child-friendly community room.
