Lactation Consultants

Highland Lactation Consultants

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.  Our inpatient "Home With Baby" Class is taught by the lactation staff and will review baby basics, feeding and new parent resources. 

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, or email hhlactation@urmc.rochester.edu.
