Roots Birth & Women’s Health


Breast milk provides the ideal nutrition for your baby, so we strongly encourage exclusive breastfeeding for at least the first six months of life. We know that feeding your baby can be complicated, and we’re here to support you on that journey. Our breastfeeding support includes:

  • Breastfeeding education throughout your prenatal care
  • Encouragement to attend a prenatal breastfeeding class
  • Assistance in breastfeeding initiation by your midwife as well as the nursing staff and certified lactation consultants at the hospital
  • Ongoing lactation support throughout the postpartum period
  • Referral to local lactation consultant experts for more complex lactation needs
