Breastfeeding support is a team event. The physician works with many health care professionals to provide complete care to the perinatal patient, including working with nurses trained in prenatal care, labor, delivery, and postpartum and newborn care, and working with midwives who provide prenatal care, labor, and delivery for the normal, uncomplicated patient. The pediatrician is part of this team and interacts with all of these players and with the office or clinic staff who provide follow-up, newborn, and child care.
