Sutter Tracy’s breastfeeding program is one of the most successful around. A Certified Lactation Consultant meets with every new mother prior to hospital discharge and provides follow up outpatient support as needed. Sutter Tracy is focused on helping all new mothers provide the best nutrition for their newborns, and offers all the needed support to make breastfeeding the exclusive feeding option for babies.
The Obstetrics Department’s Lactation Clinic, which is open to patients as well as the rest of the community, rents high quality hospital grade electric Medela breast pumps and sells a variety of equipment to help with the breastfeeding experience. In addition to pumps, a variety of supplies are available for purchase such as pump replacement parts and kits, breastfeeding support pillows and other quality nursing supplies.
The Lactation Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm and appointments are necessary. Please call 209-833-2419 for phone advice or to schedule an appointment for a personal consultation, pump rentals and to purchase supplies.
