Reach your infant feeding goals!

InterMed is committed to helping new families breastfeed. Breast milk is an excellent source of nutrition for your baby. While breast milk is considered the optimal nutrition for infants for the first year of life and beyond, breastfeeding does not always come naturally. There are many challenges that families may face when feeding their infants.


Our lactation consultants empower families to reach their infant feeding goals in a supportive, non-judgmental setting. They provide support and education to help each family navigate feeding their babies – from the early postpartum days, through weaning. They provide hands-on care as well as practical advice that even the most sleep deprived new parents can easily follow.


Your health in the palm of your hand.

How do I prepare my baby for the visit?

Ensure your baby is ready to feed around the time of your appointment. Plan to bring an extra diaper (or two!) as pre-and-post feed weight measurements are typically obtained. Also bring any feeding accessories, cleaned and ready for use, that you typically use (ex. nipple shields),

What can I expect during my appointment?

During a lactation appointment, our skilled and experienced staff will observe a feeding and assist with positioning and latching at the breast. They can also answer questions and provide education about breast pumps, milk storage or other concerns regarding establishing or continuing breastfeeding.

What are the benefits of breastfeeding for an infant?

Infants who are breastfed have reduced risks of asthma, respiratory and gastrointestinal infections, obesity, acute otitis media, type 1 diabetes, sudden infant death syndrome and more!
