Lactation Services

Lactation Services at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System supports you before you have your baby, while you are in the hospital and after you go home. Our lactation office is on the third floor of the Montgomery Tower. We offer many breastfeeding supplies for purchase or rental in this beautiful boutique setting.

Whether you are facing specific issues with breastfeeding or just want to ensure you get off to a great start nourishing and bonding with your baby, you can schedule an appointment with one of our Certified Lactation Consultants. Call us at 864-560-2297 for more information.

Breastfeeding Support: Table for Two

We are proud to offer our free breastfeeding support group – Table for Two – for breastfeeding mothers and their babies to meet each other, discuss concerns and exchange tips on life with a new baby. Lunch is included. We ask that you attend after your baby is at least two weeks old. Please register if you plan to attend.

Check out our Events page for upcoming session dates and to register. Call us at 864-560-2297 for questions or to register.

Milk Depot

Breast milk is the ideal nutrition for your baby, especially if your newborn is ill or born prematurely. Human breast milk has been shown to greatly reduce illness and lower your baby’s risk of life-threatening disease such as necrotizing enterocolitis (a serious condition in which portions of the bowel undergo tissue death). If mother’s breast milk is not available, we can supplement with human donor milk that we purchase from South Carolina’s Milk Bank.

Donate Surplus Breast Milk

Spartanburg Medical Center is a Milk Depot for South Carolina’s Milk Bank. You are likely to qualify as a breast milk donor if:

  • You are generally healthy
  • You do not take medications or herbal supplements on a regular basis (with certain exceptions)
  • You do not smoke or use street drugs
  • You are willing to undergo a blood test
  • You can arrange for transportation of your milk to a depot (drop-off site)
  • Milk has been stored in designated milk storage bags or another container specifically designed for storing breast milk since pump date
  • If milk has been stored in a standalone, deep freezer, you can deliver your breast milk to a baby within one year of pump date
  • If milk has been stored in a freezer attached to a refrigerator, you can deliver your breast milk to a baby within six months of pump date

Contact the Milk Depot

If you are interested in obtaining donor breast milk for your baby or have a surplus of pumped breast milk to donate, contact us at 864-560-2297.
