Genesys offers breastfeeding help for new moms

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) The Family Birthing Center of Genesys now offers help for moms who need guidance with breastfeeding. Sometimes, problems arise after breastfeeding begins, and sometimes new moms need assistance as they begin breastfeeding their baby. Women can turn to Genesys and its outpatient breastfeeding clinic for assistance, resources and support. A pediatrician - Sara Pendleton, MD, medical director of Pediatrics at Genesys; and a lactation consultant staff the clinic.

Mothers can find help for the following at the Genesys outpatient breastfeeding clinic: poor latch, insufficient milk supply, engorgement, painful breastfeeding, poor weight gain, prematurity, cleft palate, Down Syndrome and tongue-tie.

The clinic at Genesys is one of the first physician-led clinics in Michigan.

Mothers can make their own appointments or request a referral from their family physician.
