Breastfeeding Your Baby
Because breastfeeding directly contributes to improved health of mothers and babies, Frisbie Memorial Hospital provides free breastfeeding education opportunities for pregnant moms and their partners, and also support and guidance to new parents who wish to breastfeed their newborn.
Our clinical staff is specially trained to provide breastfeeding support and encouragement before, during and after hospitalization, both in person and over the phone. For more information about breastfeeding, download An Easy Guide to Breastfeeding.
