Breastfeeding Resources & Assistance @ TMB

Are you a Breastfeeding mom? Are you struggling with breastfeeding your baby? Feeling overwhelmed by it all? Wondering if your baby is getting enough breastmilk or gaining weight? Is your pump working the way you think it should? Do you just want some support? We may have answers for you.

The Milk Bank is a non-profit organization that promotes community health by expanding the safe use of human milk for all babies, especially premature and ill infants. Our vision is that every child has access to safe human milk. In addition to providing pasteurized donor human milk to premature infants and others, our core programs include the responsibility to support and educate the community in order to promote the awareness and acceptance of breastfeeding and donor milk.

Breastfeeding Resources & Assistance @ TMB offers free skilled, personal, and confidential lactation support from an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) or Certified Lactation Specialist (CLS), infant weight checks, and pump checks. Our aim is to increase breastfeeding success for Indianapolis area breastfeeding women. This program provides the support that many breastfeeding women need, while also promoting the value of Human Milk.

For phone consultation or to schedule an in-person meeting with our lactation team, call 317-536-1670 and ask for the Breastfeeding Resources & Assistance program.
