Scope of Care:
  Naval Hospital Oak Harbor offers both inpatient and outpatient lactation services. We staff experienced postpartum nurses who will help to get you started, and answer all of your questions. We also have on staff an experienced Certified Breastfeeding Counselor if you have any special situations or concerns during your hospital stay. She is available for consultation before you have your baby, or if you experience any problems or concerns after you go home. If you are not sure if you need an appointment, please feel free to give her a call. A breastfeeding class is offered as a component of the childbirth education series.
