About The Lactation Foundation

Welcome to the Lactation Foundation

The Lactation Foundation opened in October 2010. It is a joint effort between the State of Texas WIC Program and the UTHealth McGovern Medical School Department of Pediatrics.  The Lactation Foundation is a professional lactation management and training facility serving the greater Houston area.

Who We Serve

The mission of the Lactation Foundation support center is to enable mothers to reach their breastfeeding goals by providing specialized breastfeeding assistance in a nurturing environment. We also educate and train health care providers in skills needed to care for breastfeeding families and work to establish collaborative partnerships in the community.

The Lactation Foundation offers personalized, private consultations with board-certified lactation consultants. Our caring professionals can help you meet your breastfeeding goals.

Our services are offered to all mothers at no cost.

Training Opportunities

In addition to patient-centered lactation support, we also provide training in lactation management to medical residents, nurses, dietitians, WIC staff, and community health professionals.
