Breastfeeding Support

At Henry Ford Birthing Centers, we provide complete breastfeeding support for new mothers like you. From bra fittings and breast pump rentals, to assistance with basic or complex problems, we are here to help - with coaching during your hospital stay, and continued support after you go home.

  • Watch for hunger cues
  • Position your baby
  • Help your baby latch on correctly
  • Know if your baby is getting enough to eat
