LACTATION CONSULTATIONS

ALL Pediatrics providers encourage and support breastfeeding.  We offer lactation consultations for our new mothers.  This service provides support and breastfeeding education for new parents.

A pediatrician and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) will work with you to provide education, answer questions and address issues or concerns.  Mothers will be given assistance with positioning, latching and provided with education regarding milk production.

Paige Zuniga, RN, IBCLC  is available at our Lorton location for lactation consults.  Dr. Kathleen Parker-Lundgren is also available (as her schedule permits) to help with breastfeeding issues.

If you have questions regarding a medication that an Internal Medicine physician has prescribed for you; please call our Triage Nurses as they can advise if it is safe to continue nursing.

You may schedule a lactation consultation appointment by calling our appointment line at 703 436 1200, choose option 1.
