Breastfeeding Services

Breastfeeding is one of the most stressful parts of having a newborn. It’s right up there with the lack of sleep and exhaustion from delivery.

Our specialized lactation team helps you begin a successful breastfeeding routine with less stress and more success. We provide instruction at the bedside after delivery and continue to offer support for as long as you need it.

Why breastfeed?

Research shows that breast milk contains the nutrients, enzymes and infection-fighting antibodies to help babies thrive.

Breastfeeding can:

  • Boost the baby’s immune system so they’re less likely to get sick
  • Reduce your and your baby’s risk for developing diabetes
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease for babies
  • Help prevent babies from developing food allergies, asthma and eczema
  • Stimulate better health for the baby throughout their lifetime

Lactation consultants at Tanner

Among our team of specialized nurses are certified lactation consultants.

Our lactation consultants can visit with you and your newborn while you’re still in the hospital after your delivery. They work with you on latching techniques and avoiding barriers to breastfeeding like sore nipples, engorgement and low milk supply. Call 770-812-9711 for more information.

Common lactation questions

Our lactation consultants can answer many common breastfeeding questions, such as:

  • How often do I nurse the baby?
  • What position is best?
  • How soon after birth do I nurse?
  • How do I know if my baby is getting enough milk?
  • How do I keep up my milk supply?
  • Can I go back to work and still breastfeed?

Breast pump rental

Breast pumps give you the convenience of pumping and storing breast milk on your schedule. They’re great for working moms or stay-at-home moms with busy schedules.

Renting a breast pump is a good option for new mothers who intend to breastfeed for a short time or who need help establishing their milk supply. Our maternity centers in Carrollton and Villa Rica offer safe, sterile breast pumps that you can rent for a nominal fee. Call or speak to your nurse to learn more.
