Breastfeeding Support

North Mississippi Medical Center advocates breastfeeding as the superior choice of infant nutrition. Board-certified lactation consultants help breastfeeding mothers at NMMC hospitals in Tupelo, Amory and West Point. They help mothers better understand the benefits of breastfeeding and to learn feeding techniques and coping skills. New mothers have the option of meeting with a consultant either before or after delivery by appointment.
