Breastfeeding Services at WellSpan York Hospital

Breastfeeding mothers at WellSpan York Hospital Mother-Infant Center have access to the York Hospital Breastfeeding Center, whose staff members are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). They are experts who can help you prevent, recognize and address your breastfeeding concerns. At least one consultant is available every day in the hospital to see patients and take your phone calls.

We welcome telephone calls at any time. Outpatient consultations are also available, but pre-registration is required.  In order to allow us to reserve time for your visit, please call Michele Chronister, CRNP, at (717) 851-2953 in advance to arrange for a consultation.

The Breastfeeding Center also offers high quality breastfeeding supplies and equipment at reasonable prices. Medela breast pumps, nursing pillows, a large selection of nursing bras and camisoles and breast care products are available for your purchase. Hospital-grade breast pumps are also available for rental. Gift certificates are a wonderful option for family and friends, and our consultants can guide you to make the best selections for your unique needs. 

Breastfeeding Classes for Expectant Parents

The WellSpan York Hospital Childbirth & Family Education Program offers a two-hour breastfeeding class for expectant parents. This is included in the prepared childbirth series or can be taken individually.
