Breastfeeding Resources

Although breast-feeding is a natural process, many women struggle in the first few months to feel comfortable and confident with their decision. We are committed to helping each mother every step of the way to better health outcomes for her baby.

Breastfeeding is one of the most effective ways to ensure your little one has the nutrition they need to be healthy from the start. The World Health Organization actively promotes breastfeeding as the best source of nourishment for infants and young children. Find quality, compassionate care at a hospital near you.

Recognizing Cardiovascular Disease Symptoms

The symptoms can vary, depending on the specific condition and any other body parts it affects, such as your legs. Since cardiovascular conditions affect the heart, they share some symptoms.

Common symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Flutters or heart palpitations
  • Weakness
  • Fainting
  • Edema (swelling) 

These symptoms can signal a life-threatening emergency. If you experience chest pain or shortness of breath, call 911 for immediate medical care. Learn more about how our hospitals can help you with your heart health.

Identifying Depression Warning Signs

It's important to know the difference between a few glum days and signs of something more serious. Recognizing the warning signs of depression makes you aware of when you should seek diagnosis and treatment from your doctor or urge a friend to get the help he or she needs.

How can you tell if you or a loved one is struggling with depression? Of course, only a qualified professional can make an official diagnosis, but the National Alliance on Mental Illness lists several common depression warning signs, including:

  • Feeling sad or withdrawn for more than two weeks.
  • Severe, problematic mood swings.
  • Worries or fears that get in the way of regular activities.
  • Sudden fear for no reason.
  • Trying, or planning, to physically harm oneself.
  • Risky behavior, such as reckless driving.
  • Significant changes in eating patterns and weight.
  • Repeated misuse of drugs or alcohol.
  • Drastic changes in personality, behavior, and sleeping habits.
  • Extreme difficulty focusing or sitting still.

If you are experiencing these symptoms yourself, please do not wait to seek help from a qualified professional. To find a psychiatrist who can help, call (909) 806-1919 or by go online to We also offer a great Intensive Outpatient Program to individuals in the Inland Empire which can help with more severe cases of depression through daily treatment sessions.
