The Breastfeeding Support Center


Breastfeeding is the normal way for you to nourish your baby. Melrose-Wakefield Hospital has been a long-time supporter of breastfeeding mothers. To help make nursing successful, we offer expert lactation care, services, and supplies to support and encourage patients throughout their breastfeeding experience. Our program is provided by certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) - highly specialized health care providers - who offer individualized consultation to assess you and your baby's feeding style and assist with education and problem-solving.

While breastfeeding is natural and ideal for both mother and baby, sometimes circumstances arise where guidance and support are needed, or simply reassurance that breastfeeding is going well. We are available for telephone support or welcome you to schedule an appointment with us at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital by calling (781) 979-MILK (6455). Contact us if you have questions or concerns about breastfeeding.
