Lactation Center

Pediatric Associates of Richmond has been a pioneer in providing in-house breastfeeding support services.  Services include lactation consultation, nursing bra fittings, and assistance with breast pump rentals, purchase, and adjustments.  The majority of first time parents are unaware that most lactation services are covered by health insurance plans, and we help take care of insurance reimbursement.

Lactation Appointments

Jan, Robin, Laura, Lauren, and Heather, our 5 international board certified lactation consultants (I.B.C.L.C.), have over 40 years of combined experience, and see patients at each of our locations.  Because each I.B.C.L.C. is also a Nurse Practitioner you have the option of combining the lactation visit with your infant’s regularly scheduled check-ups or weight checks, saving you time and money.

Lactation Rooms

We have 3 lactation rooms at our West End location, 1 at our Mechanicsville location, and 1 at our Short Pump location.


Nursing bra fitting.

Breast pump rentals, sales and adjustments.  We are a certified Medela station.
