Lactation Support

Pregnancy, childbirth, adoption, surrogacy and loss are all major life transitions. Johns Hopkins knows that continuing to chest or breastfeed, or exclusively pump after returning to work or study requires extra planning, patience and support. The Johns Hopkins Lactation Support Program helps make the transition back to work or study easier so you can express milk for as long as it is the best choice for you and the beneficiaries of your milk.
