At North Country HealthCare, we strive to provide the best and most comprehensive care for babies and their families. Breastfeeding (also known as chestfeeding) is one of the most important things a parent can do to give baby the healthiest start in life. However, chest/breastfeeding can often be challenging. At North Country HealthCare, we want to offer everyone who wishes to chest/breastfeed the opportunity to receive quality care and support in order to achieve their breastfeeding goals.
We have a team of health care providers with experience providing lactation support, including an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). In-person assistance is available at our Flagstaff – 4th Street, Lake Havasu and Winslow locations. Telehealth appointments are available at all locations we serve.
Our lactation specialists can help manage a wide variety of chest/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.
Please call the North Country HealthCare location nearest you to set an appointment with a lactation specialist at your convenience. You do not need to be an established patient with a doctor at North Country HealthCare.
Lactation appointments are billed as a pediatric appointment. Coverage will depend on your insurance plan. If you are uninsured, a sliding fee scale is available.
