As part of our initiatives as a “Baby Friendly” Hospital, almost all our nurses are trained to give lactation support. We also have our own, onsite Lactation Clinic that provides specialized quality medical care for breastfeeding and infant feeding difficulties. Our lactation consultants offer relevant information, support and guidance for a successful breastfeeding journey.
Breastfeeding is the best way to feed your newborn, but even though it is natural, it might not always be straightforward. Both you and your baby need to learn the process, and it is normal for you to take a few wees to master the techniques, and you may face some difficulties. However, almost all difficulties can be overcome with adequate instruction and guidance by our International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). You have the chance to meet with our lactation consultants during your pregnancy, or during your stay at the hospital after deliver. We, however, advice you to see them before you give birth to be well-prepared. They will also provide you with the support you need during your stay with us.
During the consultation, our breastfeeding consultants will spend time with you and your baby reinforcing proper techniques, answering your questions and offering personalized support in order to develop an effective feeding plan tailored to your needs. Moreover, you can take part and attend our regular antenatal classes, or join our Danat Al Emarat’s breastfeeding mommies support group monthly.
In case your baby was admitted to our NICU, our team will also support you all the way with breast milk pumping to ensure continuation of breastfeeding upon the discharge of your baby.
