Breastfeeding Services & Programs
UR Medicine Breastfeeding Services and Programs are provided by Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Toxicology. We seek to help families, providers, trainees, and employees.
Lactation (breastfeeding) support for mothers/parents and their babies is available in our emergency rooms and across our hospital units. If you are breastfeeding/lactating and require an inpatient or ER consult, please ask your nurse to page "Lactation." We are available daily from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., 365 days per year.
We have a team of highly trained board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLC) and certified lactation counselors (CLC) in Pediatrics and Obstetrics, with consultation from the Lactation Study Center.
To speak to a lactation consultant by phone after discharge, please call (585) 275-9575 and someone will return your call within 24 hours.
