The Breastfeeding Center of Pittsburgh is here to assist you with any breastfeeding concerns you may have, or any issues you may be experiencing.
Whether you need just general breastfeeding guidance, or if you have problems with latch, milk supply, or pain with feedings – we’re here to help.
Our three offices are conveniently located north, central and south of Pittsburgh. All offices are staffed by International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs).
An IBCLC is a health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding and is certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE). Currently, there are over 28,000 IBCLCs in 102 countries! We’re proud to have 17 IBCLCs on staff at the Breastfeeding Center — more than any other clinic in the country!
You and your baby are a pair – and that’s no different when it comes to breastfeeding. Therefore, both you and your baby will be seen and evaluated by one of our providers. These evaluations include a breast exam for Mom (as breasts are part of breastfeeding!), blood pressure, and temperature. Infants will be weighed, measured, have their temperatures taken, and then be further assessed by the medical provider.
First, you’ll meet with your Lactation Consultant, who will observe your breastfeeding and listen to any concerns you may have. The LC will address these issues with the Provider. Through this team approach, a personalized care plan will be created for both you and your baby.
Your Lactation Consultant will call you shortly after your visit to see how you and baby are doing. Occasionally, follow-up appointments may be recommended.
We’re happy to keep working with you to help you achieve your goals, and to keep you and your baby healthy and happy!
