Published in Media Releases

CentraCare Health - Monticello now offers outpatient lactation services for nursing mothers. The hour long, one-on-one session with an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Counselor is designed to provide nursing mothers with additional support after they leave the hospital.

"The health and wellness of our moms and new babies is our top priority," said Hannah Whalen, RN, Birth Center Manager at CentraCare Health - Monticello. "We are proud to offer outpatient lactation support for moms who may have additional needs once they are home with their baby. New moms can feel reassured that their breastfeeding questions can be answered in a compassionate, one-on-one setting. Also, the service is unique to our area and does not require a referral, providing moms with convenient access to the care they need."

By offering outpatient lactation support, CentraCare Health - Monticello demonstrates its commitment to delivering compassionate, patient-centered care to meet the needs of our community.
