Our Specialty Services
  • Breastfeeding medicine focuses on the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding and human lactation. Those trained primarily in this field are known as lactation specialists and consultants. Physicians, often pediatricians, obstetrician-gynecologists or family practitioners who are trained in lactation, provide care for nursing mothers and their children. This branch of medicine is slightly different than other specialties because physicians who practice in this field combine medical and lactation support for both mother and baby, providing care to both patients at the same time. While breast milk is felt to be nature’s first food, breastfeeding does not always come naturally. Breastfeeding is a physiological process that involves both the mother and baby. We provide specialized breastfeeding care for both mother and baby. Because we are a medical specialty practice and we are seeing both mother and baby as patients in one office visit, we can address and treat any issues that are identified with either the mother and/or the baby. In addition to providing basic lactation care and support, we also provide medical support, guidance and treatment for more complex breastfeeding issues. We also offer appointments with Trinity Health IHA Medical Group lactation consultants at several area practice locations. Our lactation consultants are all certified nurse practitioners.

About The Practice

Trinity Health IHA Medical Group, Breastfeeding Medicine - Ann Arbor Campus (formerly IHA Breastfeeding Medicine) strives to empower families to reach their infant feeding goals through comprehensive, evidence-based lactation care in a supportive, non-judgmental setting. While breast milk is felt to be nature’s first food, breastfeeding does not always come naturally. There are many challenges that families may face when feeding their infants.

Breastfeeding is a physiological process that involves both the mother and baby. A visit to our office involves a thorough assessment of both mom and baby to address breastfeeding concerns and identify each family’s individual feeding goals. Each office visit is about one hour in length. Our goal is to provide support, education and treatment that addresses your needs. When you leave our office, you will have a personalized feeding plan that includes care for both mother and baby and a follow-up plan, either with us or your primary care provider. If you are experiencing an urgent issue after hours, please contact your primary care provider's office or your child's pediatrician.

We see both mother and baby during an office visit. We will be observing a feeding and assisting with any concerns you have about positioning and latch at the breast as well as questions about pumping if that is applicable. We ask that you feed your baby about two hours before the scheduled appointment so the baby is hungry and ready for a feeding at the time of your visit, but not starving and frantic. If you have a breast pump and kit, we also ask you to bring those with you in case we need to address any concerns about pumping.

We accept most forms of insurance. If you have an HMO plan, we will need insurance referrals from both the mother’s and baby’s primary care physician (PCP). We are considered a specialty medical practice, so if you have co-payments for specialist visits, we will need to collect a separate co-pay for both mother and baby. If you have questions about your individual coverage, please contact your insurance company directly.
