Breastfeeding is a Journey

UR Medicine's Division of Breastfeeding & Lactation Medicine is one of the leading programs in the world.

Breastfeeding & Lactation Medicine providers leverage their medical training to address complex problems facing lactating parents and their children. Lactation consultants are experts in latching, milk production/management and family feeding behaviors. Both approaches are vital to our mission of helping families reach their own infant and child feeding goals.

We understand that families come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, gender-identities and physiologies. We have unique expertise in understanding the different opportunities and challenges that face the diverse families we see today. We are dedicated to helping families with their breastfeeding and lactation journeys, while also educating providers, trainees, and employees on ways to better serve our patients.
