New moms often need breastfeeding support and encouragement, and many times they need help learning how to get their baby to latch on. While you and your baby are at Graham Hospital, many of the nurses will offer advice and breastfeeding help. However, once you are comfortably at home, our certified lactation counselors are only a phone call away, should you have any questions or need additional help.

To speak with a Certified Lactation Counselor, please call: (309) 647-5240 ext. 2376.

The newborn nursery is available as needed for all infants ranging from minimal care in the nursery to more specialized care such as IV fluids, oxygen, and more when warranted.
