As a Baby Friendly hospital, Dominican Hospital offers mothers and families extensive information and support for successful breastfeeding.
There are many health benefits you can pass directly to your baby through breastfeeding. Just as we support the mother-baby bond during pregnancy and through delivery, we also offer daily support for breastfeeding to further strengthen that bond.
