Lactation & Breastfeeding Support Services

At North Country HealthCare, we are committed to offering care and support to both infants and their families. We understand that breastfeeding can present challenges, which is why we provide high-quality care and comprehensive support to empower every parent who chooses to breastfeed, ensuring they can achieve their breastfeeding goals with confidence.

We have a team of health care providers with experience providing lactation support, including an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Assistance in person is available at our Flagstaff – 4th Street and Lake Havasu City locations. Telehealth appointments are available at all locations we serve.

Our lactation specialists can help manage a wide variety of breastfeeding issues, such as low supply, pain when feeding, poor weight gain in baby, over supply, pumping, returning to work, weaning, and any other issues that parents and babies face.

Lactation Class for New & Expecting Parents

Meet our lactation counselors and get answers to your specific questions and concerns. Discuss lactation and breastfeeding challenges, receive advice, and discover the benefits of breastfeeding for both you and your baby.
