Your pregnancy journey

Start your journey with us


Breastfeeding has many health benefits for moms and babies. Among them, breastfeeding gives babies immunities and "good" bacteria that can help protect them from illness.

Did you know that Gundersen Health System has been certified as a Baby-Friendly Hospital since 2008? This signifies that our providers and staff are expertly trained in breastfeeding and committed to giving babies the best start in life.

Breastfeeding may take time and practice, but you can enjoy the benefits and rewards of breastfeeding—every step of the way—with help from our certified lactation consultants.

  • While you are pregnant, we offer breastfeeding classes.
  • During your hospital stay, one of our certified lactation consultants will see you and your baby.
  • After you go home, our lactation consultants continue to offer support by phone or outpatient visit.

Regardless of how you choose to feed your baby, we'll be by your side to support the goals that you set for yourself and your new baby.
