Mom breastfeeding babyFor women who plan to breastfeed their newborns, Denver Health has International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) and certified lactation counselors that are committed to helping a mother achieve the best breastfeeding experience for her and her baby.

We offer classes to help moms prepare for breastfeeding prior to delivery. We offer lactation support in the hospital to help mom and baby shortly after birth. In addition, breastfeeding support and education services are available through the Denver Health Women Infants and Children (WIC) program which has offices at several locations in Denver.
