The BirthPlace has International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) available seven days a week. IBCLC’s have advanced training in breastfeeding support and education. All breastfeeding mothers are seen by a lactation consultant during their stay at The BirthPlace, to help mothers and families initiate and maintain breastfeeding.
The BirthPlace is a milk depot for the Mothers' Milk Bank of Denver. Through this partnership we offer human donor milk to all NICU and healthy term infants requiring breastmilk supplementation. Parker Adventist Hospital was also awarded the Colorado Can Do 5! Breastfeeding Excellence Starts Today (B.E.S.T.) award.
