Breastfeeding Support

At Sequoia Hospital, we embrace breastfeeding. We offer mothers and families extensive information while helping moms achieve their goals.

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. The Center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (closed on holidays).

  • 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 650.367.5597 on weekday afternoons. Please leave a message for a return call by the end of our next business day.
  • Our drop-in New Parents Support Group is designed to address early child and parent development issues, reduce isolation, and provide a foundation for asset-building skills.
  • Family Room - Available weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for parents who wish to weigh and/or feed their babies. No appointment necessary.
