Breastfeeding outpatient support services help moms to achieve their breastfeeding goals, and are provided free for Peninsula Regional breastfeeding families.  These services include an office visit with the lactation consultant to work through problems. Problems may require only one visit or several until breastfeeding is progressing well.  To schedule an appointment call the Breastfeeding Helpline at 410-543-7199.
