Lactation / Breastfeeding Services | Northfield Hospital & Clinics


Lactation Services is located within The Birth Center. Check-in at the Hospital Front Desk. 

We provide you with education and support to help make breastfeeding a positive experience for you and your new baby. While you are in the hospital, our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and lactation trained nurses, will help you through each step of breastfeeding to ensure your baby has a healthy start to life. Once you are home, you can make an appointment to meet with the lactation consultant one-on-one to provide additional support, discuss problems and answer your questions. We also encourage you to attend Baby Talk, a weekly support group for new moms. Lactation questions are addressed there by our lactation consultant.

How to set up an appointment

Call 507-646-1216. You do not need a referral. Everyone is welcome wherever your baby was born. Lactation visits are often covered by insurance, but you'll want to check with your individual insurance plan by calling the number on your insurance card, to verify coverage.
