Lactation Counseling

The Lactation Counseling Program at Sanford Vermillion is designed to support your breastfeeding needs and goals for feeding your baby.

The program includes:

  • One prenatal visit (around 36 weeks pregnant), a one-on-one counseling session to answer any questions before delivery
  • In-hospital counseling and support after delivery as needed
  • Post-natal follow-up phone calls and if needed, an in-home visit for further support

Expectant mothers considering breastfeeding are fortunate to have the expertise of a trained lactation counselor at Sanford Vermillion. Certified Lactation Counselors, Heidi Waters, RN, CLC and Kay Hoesing, RN are available to provide this support.
