Because breastfeeding is known to provide many health benefits for both babies and their mothers, the birth professionals at Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital are committed to supporting women who choose to breastfeed.

Lactation Support Services

Our certified lactation consultants are trained to help you get started breastfeeding as soon as your baby arrives, and support you and your baby throughout your breastfeeding experience. As part of the family-centered care provided at our Family Birthplace, you’ll receive all the one-on-one help and guidance you need to succeed.

Breastfeeding education is included in all our childbirth classes. You’ll also find ongoing support from other mothers and registered nurses who are board-certified lactation consultants in our breastfeeding support groups. Breastfeeding classes are held at Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital.
