Babies were born to breastfeed!
The Birth Centers at the San Martín and Siena Campuses are the first in southern Nevada to earn the prestigious Baby-Friendly USA designation. The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global program launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to encourage and recognize hospitals that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.
We have one of the most extensive breastfeeding programs in the state. The Siena Campus has lactation staff coverage seven days a week, and the San Martin Campus has coverage six days a week. While breastfeeding is the best for your baby and leads to wonderful bonding, it can sometimes be challenging to get started. This is where our lactation support comes in. We will guide and help you and your baby learn to breastfeed successfully.
Breastfeeding is one of the greatest gifts you can give your new baby. At St. Rose Dominican, we understand that sometimes breastfeeding can be challenging. We have developed this video to help answer some of the most common questions, and to help you be successful with breastfeeding your new baby.
Breastfeeding can sometimes be challenging, especially when your baby is in the NICU. We encourage mothers to pump their milk for use in the NICU. However, hand expressing is also needed to ensure your milk supply continues. We have developed this video to help answer your questions and show you how to hand express.
