Lactation Consultation

Choosing to breastfeed is one of the most important things you can do for your baby. We’ll be with you to help make sure both of you get the hang of it.

It only gets easier from here.

Nursing Basics

Choosing to breastfeed is one of the most important things you can do for your baby. But it doesn’t always come easy. Breastfeeding is a new experience for both mother and child, and sometimes one or both of you may need a little help to get the hang of it. That’s why INTEGRIS brings you lactation consultants at our birth centers across Oklahoma. Professional lactation consultants offer support by providing an initial assessment, latch-on evaluation and breastfeeding education. Best of all, this is at no cost to mothers who deliver their babies at INTEGRIS.

  • Your time with your lactation consultant might include:
  • Written breastfeeding instructions and tips.
  • Helping initiate breastfeeding within one hour of birth.
  • Providing tips and assistance in establishing a breastfeeding routine.
  • Showing mothers how to breastfeed and how to maintain lactation even if they should be separated from their infants.
  • Possible follow-up visits.

Worth It

Though it might be challenging in the beginning, we promise breastfeeding will be worth it in the long run – and then some. Not only does it help your baby get all the nutrients and antibodies they need, it’s much easier and much more affordable compared to formula feeding. Best of all, it gives you both precious time to bond.
