Certified and Experienced
All Highland Lactation Consultants are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners®. Our goal is to promote, protect, educate, and assist with breastfeeding comfort and confidence. We are available seven days a week (except holidays) for consultation services.
Prenatal Breastfeeding Classes
Attending a prenatal breastfeeding class is strongly encouraged. To learn more, visit our class web page or call (585) 473-2229.
While You're at Highland Hospital
One of our lactation consultants will visit you in your room during your hospital stay to answer questions and concerns, to observe and assist you with feedings as needed, and to provide breastfeeding education. First time moms will be seen each day of their post partum stay. Experienced moms will be seen at least once and follow up visits will be as needed or requested. Our lactation consultants can assist in the labor room, the post anesthesia care unit (PACU), or in the Special Care Nursery.
After You Leave the Hospital
If you have any questions about breastfeeding, or difficulties with breastfeeding, please call (585) 341-6808 to speak with the inpatient lactation consultant.
Outpatient visits with a lactation consultant are available on Wednesdays for a $60.00 fee. A receipt will be issued at the time of your visit. Please contact 585-341-6206 to schedule an appointment.
