The Women’s Health Department at Flushing Hospital offers lactation support to all women who deliver throughout their postpartum stay, including at night and during weekends. Our patients are highly satisfied with the support they receive from our fully trained team of Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) and Certified Lactation Counselors (CLC). Some of our team members have over 40 years of breastfeeding/chestfeeding support experience. All team members are trained and dedicated to help support mothers with their breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals.
In addition, Flushing Hospital offers free breastfeeding/chestfeeding support via our breastfeeding/chestfeeding support hotline at 718-670-5201. Even if a patient did not deliver at Flushing Hospital, they are welcome to call for support. Our team is always available and ready to assist you. We pride ourselves in delivering equitable care and offering our services, regardless of education, insurance, race, religion, or socioeconomic background.
