Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center has several trained lactation counselors on staff to help new mothers reach their breastfeeding goals


A certified lactation counselor is also available in the Beatrice Women's and Children's Clinic to work with new moms.


The nurses are trained to help families in many ways, including:

  • Promoting skin to skin contact after delivery
  • Educating on proper positions to obtain correct latch
  • Evaluating breast pain or infections
  • Knowing if the baby is getting enough milk
  • Training to pump and store milk safety

Once you leave the hospital, our certified lactation counselors are available by telephone. Calls that cannot be answered immediately will be returned as soon as possible. Call 402-223-7315 with any breastfeeding questions you may have. Our goal is for you to have the best breastfeeding experience possible for you and your baby.
