A place for new parents to learn the benefits and basics of nursing their newborn baby
Learning to nurse can take time, practice and patience. At Novant Health Nursing Mother’s Place, our international board-certified lactation consultants can teach you techniques for a successful nursing experience, provide follow-up contacts, and promote confidence in your nursing abilities.
Our breastfeeding consultants are available to work with you and your family throughout your hospital stay. And once you leave the hospital, you can continue to receive personalized follow-up care.
You may self-refer to Novant Health Nursing Mother’s Place or be referred by your doctor. Our lactation consultants will share feeding plans and information with both your doctor and your baby’s doctor to help coordinate your family’s care.

- Prenatal breastfeeding classes
