Breastfeeding Support


The Pediatric, Obstetric, and Nursing Departments at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Children's Hospital are committed to breastfeeding. Our goal is to provide every mother and her baby:

  • Support from all VUMC and Children's Hospital health care providers
  • Promotion of nursing and medical practices in the hospital that support successful breastfeeding
  • Support for continued breastfeeding after leaving the hospital
  • Education for the lay and professional communities

As a result, we are pleased to offer the following services to breastfeeding mothers and families:

  • Breastfeeding classes
  • In-hospital consults
  • Telephone consults
  • Medela breastfeeding products/pumps
  • Medela Symphony breastpump rentals
    ($25 per week minimum, $70 per month or $160 for a 3 month rental)
