The Women's Hospital at Renaissance

Lactation Program

The Women’s Hospital at Renaissance has been designated a Texas Ten Step hospital which means we're dedicated to supporting your breastfeeding needs and provide all the support to get you and your baby off to a good start before going home.
 
Once your baby is born, members of the nursing staff who have received basic training in breastfeeding assistance will assist you with breastfeeding.  This assistance may start as early as in your labor and delivery suite if requested. We also have a team of board-certified lactation consultants available to provide assistance, education and special breastfeeding equipment if necessary.
