Breastfeeding Services

At Enloe Medical Center our goal is to provide mothers with the information, confidence, and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding.

Our caregivers are here to provide ongoing support before, during and after childbirth. Each mother comes to us with a personal infant feeding goal.

It is our privilege to assist each woman in achieving her goal.

We're Baby Friendly

In 2011, Enloe Medical Center became the first hospital between Butte County and Oregon to be recognized with the prestigious Baby Friendly award.

This means Enloe is certified under criteria established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. Learn more

Before Delivery

We offer an array of breastfeeding services you can take advantage of even before delivery, including:

  • Classes that cover everything you need to know about breastfeeding.
  • Personalized consultations with our lactation consultant. Breastfeeding consultations are available by appointment.
  • Breastfeeding Supply Store with breast pumps and hands-free pumping bras, breast pump spare parts, nursing pillows and stools, breastmilk collection and storage items, and specialty feeding assistance items.

During Your Hospital Stay

During your stay at Enloe, our nursing staff will help you establish breastfeeding from the moment your baby is born.

Ideally, your baby will immediately attach to your breast and begin to nurse without assistance. However, if this doesn’t happen, our team will provide added support.

Specially trained lactation consultants can also develop feeding plans and arrange outpatient support as needed. Talk to your care team about this.

After Your Stay

Lactation support is available once you leave the hospital through our Enloe Mother & Baby Education Center. Learn more.

Our Breastfeeding Supply Store also offers a variety of equipment and supplies for moms. Breastfeeding classes are also part of our Bittie Baby & Me parenting education series. Learn more.

Going back to work or school? Get tips on how to continue breastfeeding once you do from Lyndsey Williams, RN, an Enloe lactation specialist, and Holly Pennington, an Enloe human resources specialist, in this video. They'll also go over the benefits of breastfeeding.
