Nurses who are board-certified lactation consultants, as well as peer counselors, are available to offer advice and support to mothers about their pumping schedules and milk production. The lactation consultants also are available to help evaluate the safety of any medications the mother may be taking and their possible transfer to her baby through her breast milk.
Experienced, thorough lactation support technicians prepare every syringe and bottle sent to nurseries - more than 100,000 meals annually - ensuring they are properly matched with the right infant.
In addition to lactation consultation and counseling, the Mothers' Milk Bank also provides the following services:
- Breast pump rentals
- Breast milk donation services
