Outpatient Lactation Clinic
CHOP believes that every family should have access to expert lactation support to help them achieve their breastfeeding goals. Families may encounter challenges that can impact breastfeeding and/or milk production, many of which can be resolved with the appropriate support. Research shows that families who receive expert lactation support are more likely to achieve their breastfeeding goals. Babies previously hospitalized with prematurity, feeding difficulties/intolerance, surgery or illness, allergies, and babies transitioning from tube feeding to oral feeding also benefit from expert lactation support.
CHOP offers outpatient lactation consultations by appointment for telehealth and/or in-person visits. During the visit a thorough maternal and infant history, infant growth assessment, and infant feeding history will be obtained. In-person visits will include a physical maternal and infant assessment and feeding observation when indicated.
