COMPREHENSIVE BREASTFEEDING

& LACTATION PROGRAM

​

We are proud of our extensive breastfeeding program.  

While we would like to encourage all new mothers to try and nurse,

 we understand that this is a very personal decision affected by 

many social, emotional, and medical factors.

We support all mothers and families whether they 

choose to bottle or breastfeed.  

We understand that there is no “one” right way to nurse your baby.  

All of our staff, from the front office to the providers, 

have training or knowledge of breastfeeding; 

culminating with our own nurse-practitioner and lactation consultant, 

Gina Reitmeyer.

​

Lactation consultants provide valuable breastfeeding advice.

Not only does Gina have a unique ability to counsel mothers 

with regard to nursing; as a pediatric nurse practitioner, 

she evaluates and follows infants and children, as well.  

As one of the few combined nurse practitioners & lactation consultants, 

she can provide services for the entire family.  

Please read the article in the Newtown Bee.

We also provide pre-natal consults during which you can talk with Gina 

or our staff about our philosophies regarding breastfeeding.  

We encourage all breastfeeding mothers to meet with Gina  

within a few days after leaving the hospital to ensure that 

your nursing starts off well.  Should any problems arise, 

you can meet with Gina promptly to correct them 

and alleviate any concerns.

While we are happy to interact with you on-line, 

we strongly believe that nothing can replace the personal interaction 

between patients and our staff.  

Please call us directly if you have any concerns about your child.
