We are here to help you make feeding your baby a fulfilling and positive experience.
Rest assured that a mother's milk has all the nutrition needed to keep a baby healthy, and only very rarely is there a medical or physical reason that a woman cannot breastfeed her baby.
You and your baby can enjoy the many benefits of breastfeeding, including a very close and special mother-baby relationship.
Methodist Women's Hospital Is Breastfeeding-Friendly
Methodist Women's Hospital promotes the benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby within an environment totally supportive of a woman’s desire to breastfeed.
Regardless of whether a baby is fed by breast or bottle, Methodist Women's Hospital supports a parent’s choice, with programs in place to help all new families get off to a healthy start.
