Lactation Support

(757) 668-9195

Lactation support is available to mothers of hospitalized infants and children to promote optimal nutrition for proper growth and development. Lactation support is available at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters through the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and is provided by registered nurses who have received training and international certification in breastfeeding and human lactation.

When a breastfeeding baby is admitted to the hospital, we encourage physicians to access our services by ordering a lactation consultation.
