Breastfeeding Support & Services

Breastfeeding can be one of life’s most beautiful experiences. In addition to providing nutrition for your baby, it can be a wonderful way for you and your child to bond. Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare birth centers support and encourage breastfeeding and offer a variety of services for this special time.

Baby Friendly Hospital

Mothers who give birth at Baby Friendly Hospitals, like Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare - St. Francis and Wheaton Franciscan - Elmbrook Memorial Campus, are more likely to start and keep breastfeeding their babies exclusively for up to a year. This designation is awarded to hospitals after undergoing an extensive accreditation process that meets the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.
