Breastfeeding Support Services

It is our mission to provide support and resources for all breastfeeding moms. At PCMH, we offer support and resources through our very own Certified Breastfeeding Specialist. Bethany Rhodes, MA, CCC-SLP, has completed 90 hours of lactation education. Plus, she has personal experience nursing her very own children. Rhodes is dedicated to helping new and experienced mothers with prenatal education, daily support at the hospital following delivery, and continued support after baby and mom go home. Rhodes is also a Speech Language Pathologist with over 10 years' experience, specializing in feeding and swallowing with patients from birth to geriatric.
