Nursing mothers often need help after they leave the hospital. We are pleased to have on staff a certified lactation consultant, Heather Buccigross, PA, who is available by phone or in the office to answer questions and offer support with breastfeeding. Heather meets with mothers in our specialty center, where a lactation room is designed and furnished to provide comfort and privacy for consultations. Heather also works with your physician or physician assistant to monitor your infant’s progress. Additional support for parents of infants between the ages of two weeks to three months can be found in our newborn support group led by Heather, which is a forum for parents to ask questions, share helpful hints, and connect with other new parents. Heather is thrilled to add lactation consultant to her set of skills, and is available by appointment and by phone call most days. Please don’t hesitate to ask your doctor, PA, or nurse if you have any questions.
