Breastmilk—full of immunities, antibiotics, and nutrients—is the most complete nutrition for your baby. Breastfeeding can be a very satisfying experience. Our registered nurses, who provide your post-partum care, are trained to be your first line of help with breastfeeding your baby. Lactation consultants are available to new families with more complex breastfeeding concerns at the Family Birthing Center at CHI St. Luke’s Health–The Woodlands Hospital.
We encourage you to take our breastfeeding class during your pregnancy. You will learn how your body makes milk, how to get breastfeeding off to the best start, what to expect in the first few days after birth, and much more. Our nursing team and consultants are here for you.
