Breastfeeding and Lactation Program

Black mom breastfeeding

Our Breastfeeding and Lacation program was started in 2017 by Midwife, Hayley Hoffman who recognized the need for postpartum lactation support within the community.

The program serves patients and their families in Maryland and provides support through their entire lactation journey of pregnancy, birth, delivery, postpartum and care for their newborn after birth. With its goal of helping patients meet their feeding goals the program can addresses a variety of concerns.
