Lactation Services

Our team of Lactation Consultants is available for both inpatient and outpatient consultation that can help with a variety of breastfeeding concerns and challenges. Be sure to check with your insurance provider to see if these services are covered.

If you want a consult while you are a patient, just ask your nurse. After you have gone home, you can schedule an appointment by calling our office at 720-854-7230. Please be aware that we cannot accommodate drop-ins for outpatient consults.

Many questions about breastfeeding can be answered over the telephone. Please call us at any time during your breastfeeding experience: 720-854-7230.  Electric breast pumps are available for both rental and purchase. Please call for availability and rates.

Private Lessons

For expectant families who have needs that would be better met by one-on-one instruction, we offer several classes on a private basis at the Foothills Hospital. Private instruction can generally be completed in a shorter time period. If there is a medical reason that prevents you from traveling to the hospital, they can then be held in the privacy of your home.

The following classes are available for private instruction:

Childbirth Preparation (4-5 hours depending on need)

  • Sibling Preparation for Attending a Birth (2 hours)
  • Preparing for a Cesarean Birth (1.5 hours including a tour of the surgical suite when possible)
  • Childbirth Preparation (4-8 hours depending on the needs of the family)

Fee: $50.00/hour

For more information, call 720-854-7834.
