Your New French Hospital
We emphasize breastfeeding at French Family Birthing Center, and to help, we offer mothers and families extensive information while also helping moms achieve the confidence and the skills necessary to successfully breastfeed their babies.
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.
That support begins when you’re still in the birth center where we practice a technique called “rooming-in,” which allows you and your new baby to be together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We help you to start breastfeeding within an hour of birth and offer an enormous amount of 'skin to skin' time throughout your stay. We discourage pacifiers and we provide additional resources for you once you leave the birth center your new little bundle of joy.
With our board-certified lactation consultants, we have the expertise and the knowledge needed to help you and your baby. Our Breastfeeding Center is located in the Pacific Medical Plaza and provides full support, both in person and on the phone.
Visit our maternity classes and events for more information.
