Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is best for your baby, and it's good for your health, too. But it's not always easy, that is why Stephens County Hospital not only promotes breastfeeding but also provides education and support. We have ten Certified Breastfeeding Counselors on staff in New Impressions Maternal Services. One of the most highly effective preventive measures a mother can take to protect the health of her infant is to breastfeed. If you have chosen to breastfeed, we want to make sure you have the best start possible. We encourage skin-to-skin contact and will be there to support you and your baby every step of the way. One of our Certified Breastfeeding Counselors will be happy to assess and evaluate your baby’s latch and answer any questions that you may have. Research tells us that “Breast is Best” and at New Impressions – Maternal Services, we want to encourage you in your breastfeeding choice. We are also available for any questions you may have once you are at home with your new baby.
