Treasure Valley Midwives is home to Boise's premier out-of-hospital lactation clinic offering home & office lactation visits, supplies, and classes to Treasure Valley families. Our clinicians focus on individualized assistance and loving, professional support for families who choose to breastfeed as one of the main nutrition sources for their growing infant.
Treasure Valley Midwives believes that each family has different expectations for feeding their baby, whether that is exclusive breastfeeding, bottle feeding, combination feeding, or any other choice on the spectrum. We want to support you where you're at, and help you meet your goals.
The availability of our lactation consultants for home or office visits to meet families where they feel most comfortable is one of the many benefits you will find with lactation assistance through Treasure Valley Midwives. Lactation consults are a valuable tool to assist with problems you may have while you and your baby learn to breastfeed. Lactation Consults can confirm intuitions or put concerns to rest by increasing a mother's knowledge and understanding of her baby's feeding behavior.
