The joy and satisfaction of breastfeeding is an experience many women choose. At TriStar Centennial Women’s & Children’s, all of our nurses are trained in breastfeeding support and are available to help you initiate breastfeeding immediately after delivery. We were recently the only hospital in Nashville to receive the IBCLC Care Award from the International Board of Certified Lactation Consultants and the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners.

The newly renovated “A Mother’s Place” is conveniently located on the 2nd floor of TriStar Centennial Women’s & Children’s hospital and provides certified lactation consultants who are available during and after your stay to provide education and support. “A Mother’s Place” offers breastfeeding classes, consultations, professional nursing bra fittings, pump rentals and sales, and other services to make breastfeeding more comfortable and successful for mother and baby.

“A Mother’s Place” is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm or can be reached by calling the Breastfeeding Helpline at (615) 342-5650.
