Northeast Georgia Medical Center’s Lactation Centers are designed to ensure breastfeeding mothers have all the support they need, especially after coming home from the hospital. Our lactation consultants visit with all breastfeeding mothers in the hospital after their deliveries and are available by phone for any questions that may arise once the mothers return home.
NGMC's Lactation Centers provide a place for mothers to purchase breastfeeding supplies such as breast pumps, nursing bras, stools, pillows and collection and storage bags. Breastfeeding mothers also have the option to rent breast pumps as well as infant scales. With each breast pump sale or rental, our lactation consultants provide individual instruction to ensure mothers are able to use it correctly.
Lactation services are provided in Gainesville (825-A Jesse Jewell Parkway, in front of the Medical Center’s Main Campus) and Braselton (on campus).
