Breastfeeding provides your baby with a strong nutritional start and helps with emotional development. Breast milk is an easily digested, perfectly matched nutrition source filled with antibodies that protect against infection. Breastfeeding also promotes bonding and contributes to a special, loving relationship with your newborn.

Some mothers find breastfeeding more difficult than they expected, however most difficulties can be overcome with instruction and guidance.

The Lactation Center at St. Luke's Hospital is a resource for all mothers who choose to breastfeed. Staffed by certified lactation consultants, the Center provides education and support for a successful breastfeeding experience. The Center's lactation consultants are available to provide one-on-one care for mothers during their hospital stay. The Center also offers a variety of services for before and after childbirth.

Private Consultations
Private consultations at the Center are available. For more information, please call 314-205-6378.

Breastfeeding Class and Online Program
The Lactation Center at St. Luke's offers monthly breastfeeding classes for expectant mothers. The class reviews breastfeeding techniques and is ideal for new mothers or as a refresher course. Participants learn how to recognize, manage and prevent potential problems that may arise during breastfeeding.

St. Luke's also offers an online breastfeeding program for moms-to-be who are on bed rest, have time constraints or prefer the convenience of an online resource.

Telephone Consultations
