Support for Your Body Feeding Journey

Lactation Services

Lactation support at Lifecycle begins with the first prenatal appointment and continues throughout pregnancy and during postpartum care. We take great pride in helping new parents with breastfeeding/chestfeeding, especially given the well-established medical benefits of human milk.

“I was encouraged by my lactation consultant. She gave me options and support and celebrated my journey with me. ”

Individual Lactation Services
We provide expertise and support to new parents for many lactation issues, including excess or low milk supply, latch issues, and pumping issues. In-person and telehealth options are available for lactation consultations. Services are available to any family, regardless of where they had their pregnancy care.

Call us today at 610.525.6086 to schedule an appointment with one of our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs).

Mid-Atlantic Mothers’ Milk Bank Depot & Dispensary 

In August 2018, we began accepting human milk donations through our Mid-Atlantic Mothers Milk Bank (MMAMB) Depot. The lifesaving milk that is donated via our depot goes to help medically vulnerable infants. If you have milk to share and are interested in becoming a donor, visit MAMMB’s website and click on “DONATE MILK.”

In addition to being a MAMMB Depot, we are also a MAMMB Dispensary. We are able to distribute a limited amount of frozen Pasteurized Donor Human Milk to families in need. In order to receive milk, you must first place an order through MAMMB. Once your transaction is complete and your order has been processed, please contact to schedule a pickup time.

  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield

Do I need to register for the Lactation Support Groups?

There is no need to register ahead of time. To join us virtually, email Nikki at for the Zoom login info.

Do you diagnose tongue and lip ties?

All of our IBCLCs are trained to assess for tongue and lip ties, and will provide evidence-based information and support to families, helping them understand how this will impact their infant feeding goals.

Do you do in-home lactation consultations?

No, but we offer telehealth as an option when indicated. Most of the time, it is better for our team of IBCLCs to see clients and their babies in the office so a complete assessment that includes weighing the baby, assessing latch and transfer of milk, and examination of baby’s oral cavity can take place.
