The clinic is free of charge to women whose babies were born at Wesley. A one-time chart initiation fee of $50 is required for women who did not deliver at Wesley. For more information, call (316) 962-6455.

Please note: Clinic services are provided in a group setting. Due to space constraints and to protect the privacy of our patients, we are only able to accommodate mothers and babies in the clinic area.

Wesley’s team of consultants and nurses can help mothers:

  • “Latch on” the baby comfortably
  • Find the best position for feeding
  • Weigh the baby
  • Make a family breastfeeding plan
  • Monitor milk supply
  • Deal with breast problems, including engorgement, infection, and plugged milk ducts
  • Prepare for return to work or school
  • Learn how to store breast milk safely
  • Assist with other concerns and questions about breastfeeding

Research shows that 60% of new mothers do not breastfeed as long as they intended to due to a variety of problems, many of which develop soon after mother and baby go home from the hospital. At the daily walk-in clinic, consultants are available to provide weight checks for babies and assist with any breastfeeding challenges or questions that arise.

Breast-fed babies have less risk of childhood obesity, diabetes, respiratory and ear infections and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Breastfeeding also helps the health of the mother, lowering the risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

Wesley Donor Milk Program

If you have extra breast milk, you could participate in Wesley's Donor Milk Program. The program provides moms an opportunity to help premature infants by donating their extra breast milk. The donated milk is sent to Prolacta Bioscience® where it is tested, pasteurized and made into 100 percent human milk nutritional products that are formulated to meet the needs of critically ill premature infants in Wesley's NICU.
