The Chicago Breastfeeding Center is one of the first of its kind in the Chicago area and is affiliated with Kids First Pediatric Partners. We provide exceptional care right in our office from our doctors and nurse practitioners who are also International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
We at the Chicago Breastfeeding Center team believe in the importance of breastfeeding. We recognize that breastfeeding initially can be one of the most challenging parts of caring for a new baby, and yet, it can be one of the most rewarding aspects. We understand that every breastfeeding mother has different goals and unique circumstances. At every visit we seek to help mothers define and achieve their goals for breastfeeding. We provide a warm, caring, non-judgmental environment to support and encourage mothers’ breastfeeding goals.
Our team is lead by Dr. Kathy Shepherd, and the Kids First IBCLC nurses, Kasia Ceglinski, Betsy Schorsch, and Yael Cohen, form our Chicago Breastfeeding Center team.
