Breastfeeding Your Newborn

​At SSM Health St. Clare Hospital - Baraboo, we believe in the benefits of breastfeeding. Our nursing staff receives regular training to stay up-to-date on best practices in order to support breastfeeding moms. Certified lactation consultants are also available to provide guidance and specialized support after delivery to help your family achieve the best start possible.

At SSM Health St. Clare, more than 90 percent of moms being discharged are successfully breastfeeding their babies. The biggest challenges can come during your first days at home. That's why our nursing staff are available any time, day or night, to answer questions. For moms that need extra hands-on support, lactation consultants are available for follow-up visits for as long as necessary. 

Learn how to breastfeed and care for your baby through the prenatal classes and support groups that are offered for new moms and parents-to-be.
