Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding

For most new mothers and their babies, breastfeeding is a rewarding and beneficial experience. Studies have shown breastfed infants tend to have fewer illnesses, are less likely to develop allergies, have lower incidence of diabetes, and a number of other health benefits.

Many new mothers understandably have questions about breastfeeding. At Doylestown Health's VIA Maternity Center, we provide the support needed during this transition. We offer breastfeeding classes and are staffed with certified lactation consultants who can provide answers, offer support and encouragement.

Breastfeeding Classes

Learn about the many benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby. Classes are taught by one of our breastfeeding educators. Information on breast milk collection and storage will also be provided.

Lactation Consultants

Our lactation consultants are committed to helping mothers and babies reach their breastfeeding potential. Doylestown Hospital has received the IBCLC Care Award in recognition of staffing professionals who hold the prestigious International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) certification and for providing a lactation program that is available to support breastfeeding families.
