Breastfeeding Support

We’re excited you’ve made the rewarding decision to breastfeed. Breastfeeding is best for you and your baby—it can create a lasting bond and the nutrients are invaluable. Although beneficial, breastfeeding can sometimes be challenging and stressful when you come home with your new baby—that’s why the Margaret Mary Maternity Services team is here to help.

Breastfeeding Support Open Hours
Stop by our weekly open hours to receive support, information and instruction from our certified lactation consultants. No need to schedule an appointment!

Every Monday & Thursday
8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

If you’re unable to stop by our open hours, appointments can be made with a certified lactation consultant at your convenience. Simply call our OB department at 812.933.5142 or e-mail Becky Niese to learn more.
