Lactation services with breastfeeding success

Baylor Scott & White is proud to partner with Breastfeeding Success to provide caring lactation services to patients at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Round Rock.

Breastfeeding Success is a comprehensive parent education and lactation services provider that supports families during pregnancy, after birth, and beyond. We offer breastfeeding classes and virtual support groups that teach practical skills before the big day, so new parents are fully prepared for their new arrival.

When a baby is born at Baylor Scott & White, the Breastfeeding Success team of internationally board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) will visit to assess you and your baby’s needs, provide education, and understand your feeding goals. Our experienced providers are aware of the latest evidence-based information related to infant feeding and breastfeeding. They will help you with all lactation needs including obtaining a comfortable latch, ensuring that your baby is feeding well, or helping with hand expression or pumping to get you off to the best start possible.

After you return home, Breastfeeding Success offers consults at our clinic locations, in-home visits, or via telehealth as well as brief topic-centered support by phone from our experienced team of IBCLCs. You’ll get a written care plan that’s shared with your primary care provider for seamless coordination of care.

Lactation support is a covered benefit many parents don’t realize they have. Breastfeeding Success is Central Texas’ largest provider of lactation care and parent education classes and their services are in-network with most major insurers.

Regardless of how you decide to feed your baby, Baylor Scott & White and Breastfeeding Success are honored to support any parent with breastfeeding and chest-feeding strategies as well as judgment-free support for bottle-feeding and pumping parents. We help families find their own success.

Parenting classes and resources

As an expectant parent, you already know there’s much to be done before the arrival of your baby. We’re pleased and honored to offer a variety of services to help make these coming months as stress-free and productive as possible.
