Lactation and Breastfeeding Services in Omaha, Nebraska
What to Expect from Lactation and Breastfeeding Services
At Nebraska Home Pediatrics & Parents, we know that post-partum life comes with an overwhelming mix of emotions, especially when it comes to lactation and breastfeeding. We have a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) on staff who is trained specifically to help mothers and families navigate the ups and downs of breastfeeding. Our lactation services provide tips, encouragement, and tools designed to bring ease to the breastfeeding and lactation experience.
Lactation consultants are most-often needed during the initial weeks of a baby’s life, as mother and infant learn how to find a successful breastfeeding routine. Breastfeeding and lactation can encounter hurdles like improper latch, painful nipples, and supply struggles, so our CLC is there to provide guidance, encouragement, and advice.
How We Can Help
Nebraska Home Pediatrics & Parents is proud to offer lactation and breastfeeding services to our patients as they experience the smiles and trials of early parenthood.

- Low Milk Supply
- Sore Nipples
- Plugged Ducts
