Breastfeeding and Lactation Services in Albuquerque


Becoming a mother is one of the most special, but tiring experiences. There are many sleepless nights and moments of feeling like you are in over your head. Breastfeeding, for some, can add even more stress and anxiety to having a new baby in the house, but it doesn’t have to. We rounded up a list of breastfeeding and lactation services for when you are feeling like you need a little extra assistance.

Thank you to Lovelace Health System for sponsoring this guide.

Expecting a baby is an exciting and life-changing journey. Lovelace would like to make your experience as memorable and stress-free as possible by helping you navigate your health care. No matter your insurance or birthing plan, our Labor of Love program offers you access to free pregnancy perks and assistance finding a doctor or insurance.

Lovelace Birthing Centers help bring more than 3,000 babies into the world each year with the help of our dedicated obstetricians, certified nurse midwives, obstetrical anesthesiologists, neonatologists, perinatologists, and nurses. Your birthing team will become familiar with your health history and guide you in forming a pregnancy plan that is ideal for you and your family.

When it comes time to deliver at one of our Lovelace Birthing Centers, you can expect exceptional, comfortable, and convenient care. Throughout labor and delivery, our new parents stay in one of our comfortable, private, birthing suites. Equipped with the latest technology, each room is designed for a relaxed, comfortable birth experience.

We are excited to be part of your prenatal care and delivery so that your experience is as safe, healthy, and pleasant as possible.
