At Sequoia Hospital, we embrace breastfeeding. We offer mothers and families extensive information while helping moms achieve their goals.
Learn More About Breastfeeding
Sequoia Hospital supports breastfeeding. Lactation nurses see patients on a daily basis at our Birth Center. To learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment with our lactation consultants, call (650) 367-5158.
Breastfeeding Offers Many Benefits For Baby
There are many health benefits you can pass directly to your baby through breastfeeding. Just as we support the mom-baby bond during pregnancy and through delivery, we also offer daily support for breastfeeding to further strengthen that bond.
Breastfeeding Support At The Birth Center
All Labor & Delivery nurses are trained to assist you with breastfeeding. Our registered nurses, who are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), will do daily rounds at the Birth Center.
Our Lactation Center
We offer a variety of support services for breastfeeding families at our Lactation Center, located at our Health & Wellness Center, at 749 Brewster, Redwood City.
- When you return home, our lactation consultants can follow your progress and are available by phone or with consultations. With an M.D. referral, most insurances cover these visits (but please verify with your insurance plan).
- For advice about breastfeeding, call our free "calm line,” which is answered by registered nurses who are IBCLC certified, at (650) 367-5158 on weekday afternoons. Please leave a message for a return call by the end of our next business day.
