Breast Pumps & Equipment

 

Our specialists can provide information on the types of breast pumps, rental locations and where they can be purchased. They can also offer strategies on how best to combine breastfeeding, returning to work and pumping. Information is also available about state and federal laws for nursing mothers in the workplace.

 

Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding

 

The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding also must be successfully implemented in order to receive the honor of being internationally recognized as a Baby-Friendly Hospital. 

At St. Mary's our goal is to encourage and assist new moms with breastfeeding because of the extensive health benefits for mothers and babies. We also understand and respect the mother's choice to not breastfeed and we are honored to give you and your baby the best experience possible.
