CPCMG Lactation Program

CPCMG understands how important it is to care for both new moms and their babies after birth, so we have built a team of providers who are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs).  These providers are passionate about partnering with parents through the joys and challenges of breastfeeding and are dedicated to helping you achieve breastfeeding success.

The first few weeks are a critical time for you and your baby to establish breastfeeding. Some mothers have a minimal amount of difficulty but for others, breastfeeding can be a challenge.

A lactation consultant can make the difference in the success of breastfeeding. CPCMG lactation consultants offer education and ongoing assistance for every situation you may experience. We are here for you when your baby’s latch is painful, you are concerned about your supply, or if your baby refuses to nurse. No question is off limits!

Our goal is to nurture a positive breastfeeding experience for you, your baby and your family by promoting, supporting and utilizing evidence-based and sustainable methods. We will support you in every way possible as you gain confidence and competency in breastfeeding your baby.

CPCMG lactation consultants can help mothers with many different topics:

Lactation assessment and education · Possible anxieties and insecurities · Perceived lack of breastmilk supply
Mother-infant separation · Flat, inverted or sore nipples · Breast pain
Maternal illness · Desire to wean from breastfeeding

For infants, CPCMG lactation consultants can provide guidance for common breastfeeding issues:

Feeding problems · Possible suck problems/latch difficulties · Perceived lack of breast milk supply
Nipple preference · Breast refusal · NICU infants, preemies and multiples
Excessive weight loss and slow weight gain
