Our classes and support groups are taught by registered nurses who are certified childbirth instructors, lactation consultants, and lactation counselors. 

Our accreditation as a Baby-FriendlyTM Hospital, awarded by the World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund, is an acknowledgment of our commitment to breastfeeding support and education. Studies have shown that breastfeeding can reduce infant hospitalizations and pediatrician visits.
