Lactation Services

Breast milk can be very important to the early nutritional needs of a child, whether it comes from their own mother or from donors. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at East Tennessee Children's Hospital provides lactation assistance for new moms of babies in the NICU, to help them find the best way to see to their baby's nutritional needs.
