WE ARE PROUD TO OFFER BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT
At Somerset Pediatric Group, we encourage and support breastfeeding; however, we believe the decision to breastfeed, or not, is personal and we will support your decision either way. We acknowledge that breastfeeding for any amount of time has both emotional and medical benefits for mom and baby. All of our physicians and nurses at Somerset Pediatric Group know how hard it can be for you and your baby when starting nursing and are happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
We are happy to share that one of our Nurse Practitioners, Tracy Agostino, is an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant who is available to you for additional breastfeeding support. Tracy is available for one-on-one lactation consults in both our Raritan and Hillsborough offices. We encourage breastfeeding mothers to schedule a lactation consult in the first week after discharge for early support, assistance or reassurance. Tracy is also available for any breastfeeding related issues that may arise througout infancy and beyond.
La Leche League was founded to give information and encouragement, mainly through personal help, to all mothers who want to breastfeed their babies. The mission of La Leche League is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
