Services
 
Memorial Hospital's Family Birth Center offers lactation support to new mothers through the Lactation Resource Center. The Family Birth Center provides every breastfeeding mother delivering in the Family Birth Center with a manual breast pump and instructional booklet to help get through the first week at home. These items are presented to mothers in a large tote bag prior to discharge.
