The National Women's Health Information Center now
has a Breastfeeding Helpline!
Call us with your questions at 1-800-994-WOMAN (9662).
NWHIC has partnered with La Leche League International to train our
Information Specialists so they can help you with common
breastfeeding issues such as nursing positions, questions about
pumping and storage, and provide you with the support moms and dads
need to make breastfeeding a success. The Helpline (which operates in
both English and Spanish) can also provide tips for working moms who
would like to continue breastfeeding, and offer suggestions for
financial support. The Helpline is open to nursing mothers as well as
their partners, families, prospective parents, health professionals
and institutions seeking to better educate new mothers about the
benefits of breastfeeding.
Call the Helpline Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., EST.
If you call after hours, you will be given the option to leave a
message, and a Breastfeeding Information Specialist will return your
call on the next business day.

Swedish Hospital Breastfeeding Consultants
If you're like many moms, you'll want to breastfeed your baby. In
addition to the breastfeeding class we offer during pregnancy, many
new moms take advantage of the lactation experts we have in the
hospital — people who are specially trained to help you learn how to
nurse your baby with skill and confidence. To speak to a lactation
specialist or for more information, call (206) 386-6667.

UW Medical Center lactation consultants are available daily
from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week, and by appointment on weekends
and holidays.
If you have questions, want to make an appointment, or would like
advice on breast-feeding, call Lactation Services at 206-598-4628.
Many insurance plans cover nurse consultations. Check with your
insurance carrier about your policy's coverage. Some plans may
require a referral from your primary care provider. You may also call
UW Medical Center's Patient Financial Services at 206-685-1121 for
information, or for assistance in getting insurance coverage
