Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding Support

We emphasize breastfeeding at the Stollmeyer 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.

Baby-Friendly Hospital

French Hospital Medical Center is a recognized Baby-Friendly® birth facility. This designation, received from Baby-Friendly USA, marks the highest accreditation for birth centers. Baby-Friendly hospitals are recognized worldwide for their superb infant bonding and breastfeeding practices in their birthing units. This program supports mothers and families with information, confidence, and skills to successfully breastfeed their babies. 

During your stay in the hospital with your newborn, we promote bonding and breastfeeding with lots of skin-to-skin time, education, and support. Every one of our families is seen daily by a specially trained lactation nurse to ensure a positive breastfeeding experience.
