Breastfeeding is a nurturing experience for you and your baby.
It also is an important decision that we support. Nurses in the
Family Birth Center and the Mother Baby Care Unit are trained
to assist mothers and babies with breastfeeding. The Hawai‘i
Mother’s Milk, Inc. (located in the Diamond Head Tower) also
is available for breastfeeding counseling or pump rental.

ing concerns, discuss different topics, meet other moms, and
get and give support. Bring your baby and learn and share in
a friendly supportive environment. Moms and babies age 0-12

on and a water bottle for yourself.
