Lactation Services

Did you know we have a free breast-feeding support group that meets weekly at North Kansas City Hospital? Lactation nurses give support to moms with questions about breast-feeding and conduct educational programs as requested. Leading the support groups are the Hospital’s international board-certified lactation consultants who are specialists in breast-feeding.

Supporting Breast-Feeding

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breast-feeding for at least six months and preferably a year following an infant’s birth. Learn more about the benefits of breast-feeding with our Breastfeeding Basics flyer. We also provide some guidance to back-to-work moms and a breast milk storage guide.

Breast-Feeding Support Group
Time: 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Date: Each Tuesday
Location: Frontier Room, 1st Floor Hospital
Call 816-691-1688 for more information about the group.

Petals Boutique

Petals, a boutique for mom and babies is a retail lactation store, one of a few in the Kansas City area. Located in the Mother Baby unit on 8th floor of the hospital, the store brings women the convenience of nursing supplies, bras and pump rental by appointment with guidance from a certified lactation consultant.
