Breastfeeding

The Maternity Center at South Shore Hospital offers a wide range of educational opportunities and support services for breastfeeding mothers:

  • South Shore Hospital’s “warm line”—phone support for breastfeeding mothers: 781-624-8602
  • Follow-up care in our Lactation Clinic with a medical referral.
  • Each member of our nursing staff is educated to help you establish breastfeeding. Should you require additional support, our lactation consultants are available to provide additional help to you.
  • After discharge, we offer a breastfeeding support group free of charge. Please ask your nurse or call 781-624-8602 for more information.
  • Breast pump sales and rentals are available at South Shore Hospital through Dartmouth Medical. For more information, please call 781-624-3470, or see the Breast Pump Sales and Rentals pamphlet for additional resources.
  • While we encourage and support breastfeeding as the optimal choice for your baby, we also support a mother's decision to use formula for feeding. We strive to provide education so you can make an informed decision.
