Roper St. Francis lactation consultants provide services to breastfeeding families throughout the Lowcountry, regardless of whether you delivered at a Roper St. Francis hospital. Our goal is to provide professional evidence-based information and develop a personalized teaching and care plan for you and your baby.
Our lactation consultants are board certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBCLC) and offer additional help in the hospital and on an outpatient basis at our St. Francis and Mount Pleasant Hospital Lactation Center locations. Our knowledgeable and experienced nurses have received additional training to support breastfeeding families in the first days after delivery.
We offer breastfeeding support groups at our Mount Pleasant Hospital and St. Francis Hospital locations.
