Babies and Breastfeeding Information, Education & Support (B.A.B.I.E.S.)
You are beginning one of the most exciting times in the life of a family. As you prepare for childbirth you will also be making important decisions regarding your baby's care and health. Choosing to breastfeed is a great start. You will probably have questions about getting started. We are here to help you plan for a successful breastfeeding experience.
The B.A.B.I.E.S. Clinics are staffed by Silverton Hospital obstetric nurses with special training in lactation. These nurses have been trained in post-graduate courses which specifically prepare them to assist in all routine and special-need breastfeeding situations.
- One-on-one, free consultations for the first four weeks after your baby is born
- Phone support for questions that may not require an appointment
- Back-to-work planning
- Direct communication with your healthcare provider regarding your consultation and any concerns that may require their attention
B.A.B.I.E.S. services are offered in cooperation with your healthcare provider. Our staff serves as consultants to you while your care remains under the direct supervision of your own provider. We believe that a team approach will provide the best possible care for your family.
