Golden Oak’s lactation clinic is led by Alexis Kihn-Harrington, an experienced labor and delivery registered nurse at Alta Bates and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Alexis is passionate about helping new parents establish successful breastfeeding/chestfeeding relationships with their babies.

At our clinic, Alexis will provide one-on-one support and guidance to help you overcome any breastfeeding challenges you may face. Alexis provides a home health visit to all GO parents within their first week postpartum. By continuing to see Alexis for lactation support, you'll receive the continuity of care that ensures clear and consistent advice and information. 

Alexis is in the office Tuesdays from 9 am to 1 pm, with a discounted fee of $100 for Golden Oak patients and $150 for the greater community. You can see her for any of your lactation needs including prenatal consultation, latch and supply issues, pumping and everything in between. Whether you're a first-time parent or have breastfed before, we aim to help you have a positive and fulfilling breastfeeding/chestfeeding experience with expert guidance and support tailored to your unique needs.
