Depending on Betsy’s availability in the office, we try to provide support both in office as well as remotely by phone.

In the event that more intensive lactation support is desired, nursing mothers can attend either private or hospital-based lactation clinics. While Children’s Medical Center does not endorse one Lactation Clinic over another, for your benefit we will list several local clinics in the area.
