Lactation Services

Sawtooth Mountain Clinic has two Certified Lactation Counselors to work with you both before your baby is born and during your breastfeeding journey.

Meet one-on-one during pregnancy to discuss how breastfeeding might fit into your vision of parenting.  Learn what to expect, from nutrition and making milk to baby behavior and hunger cues.  After the baby is born, get answers to your questions about milk supply, infant weight gain, and expressing milk when you’re away from the baby.  If breastfeeding causes discomfort, a lactation counselor can assess a feeding and help achieve a position and latch that is effective and comfortable.

To make an appointment, call 218-387-2330.
