Northwestern Medicine has a dedicated breastfeeding resource center in Huntley to provide professional support for nursing mothers.
After the birth of your child, breastfeeding support is provided by nurses as well as Northwestern Medicine’s certified lactation consultants at your bedside. Our nursing team will teach you how to establish breastfeeding, maintain an adequate supply of breast milk and show you ways to ensure breastfeeding success. Breastfeeding products such as manual or electric pumps are available for in-hospital use and for purchase when you are returning home. Hospital-grade double electric breast pumps are available for rent as well.
Northwestern Medicine also offers breastfeeding classes and support groups led by certified lactation consultants that will address any concerns or questions you may have.
