The New Orleans Breastfeeding Center provides high quality, holistic, and evidence-based lactation and infant feeding support to families in the New Orleans metro area, and surrounding parishes. Our team of Infant Feeding Specialists provide dyadic lactation assessment, family-centered education, infant feeding classes, parent support groups, and infant feeding supplies, to pregnant and parenting families.

We close the gap in local breastfeeding support and build the bridge for continuity of breastfeeding care in our region. We decrease infant and maternal morbidity and mortality rates in our communities, especially among African American families, by increasing breastfeeding initiation, longevity, and exclusivity, and by promoting healthy feeding and healthy relationships, regardless of feeding type.

We are not just any clinic.
