The American Academy of Pediatrics and World Health Organization recommend
breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months of your baby’s life, and
breastfeeding for at least one year.
At St.Vincent Women’s Hospital, we know that extra
support and guidance for breastfeeding mothers can really make a difference.
That’s why we offer a variety of breastfeeding programs and resources for patients who are staying with us, as well as outpatient services that include one-on-one consultations, breastfeeding classes,
support group assistance and more.
