The lactation consultant will determine the course of action that’s best for mom and baby. If the baby needs to be seen by a doctor, the consultant will lead the mom in that direction.
Every mother who gives birth at a Tidelands Health hospital can benefit from the help of a lactation consultant, one of the reasons why Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital and Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital have earned the prestigious designation of Baby Friendly, an initiative created by the World Health Organization and UNICEF to promote breastfeeding and mother-baby bonding.
