Salisbury Pediatric Associates offers lactation classes in our office daily. A lactation consultant is a specialist who is trained to focus on needs and concerns of breastfeeding. A lactation specialist is one of the many roles we have in our Medical Home that helps make up our Advanced Care Team. The role of the Advanced Care Team is to help patients and their families by providing necessary care for all patients within our practice. The lactation health coachs are Alicia Shue RN and Cindy Whitley RN BSN they are trained to prevent, recognize, and solve breastfeeding issues and concerns for mother and infant. You can call the office and speak with the specialist or make an appointment Monday thru Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM for one on one assistance. Our consultants want to help make your mother-baby bonding experience easy and enjoyable. They are here for any questions, concerns, or for any support needed with breastfeeding.
