Conditions We Treat

Lactation Medicine, or Breastfeeding Medicine, refers to the medical side of managing complicated breastfeeding and lactation problems. Our providers have advanced training in lactation, and work closely with expert board-certified lactation consultants to help you reach your goals. For instance, you may be concerned about breastfeeding on a particular medication, or you may have a preexisting condition which will require special treatment. Some people come to Lactation Medicine for breastfeeding pain, to induce lactation or for low milk supply. If you are wondering about our approach to some common or less common concerns, please see our topics, below.
