Tulane Lakeside Hospital's breastfeeding support center is staffed with two board-certified lactation consultants, as well as breastfeeding educators, to assist with breastfeeding while in the hospital. Consults are available seven days a week for new mothers in the hospital and out-patient consults are also available. Breast pumps (for sale or rent), breastfeeding supplies and intimate apparel are also available in our center. After discharge, mothers are encouraged to call us for additional support.
Donor milk is also available if medically indicated.
If you are currently pregnant and considering breastfeeding please contact us at (504) 780-4365.
