Hoag Partners with Pacify for On-Demand Lactation Support

The need for lactation support rarely hits in calm moments and during convenient hours. That is why Hoag is partnering with Pacify, the breastfeeding app that provides on-demand lactation support 24/7.

With support from Hoag innovators, every mother who delivers at Hoag through the end of 2020 will receive free unlimited access to Pacify for one year. This includes on-demand, video-enabled access to a nationwide network of board-certified lactation consultants. This is a complement to the personal one-on-one breastfeeding support provided in Hoag’s lactation clinic, which remains open on weekdays from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. For appointments, call Hoag’s BabyLine at 949-764-2229. Hoag's lactation clinic is located at 500 Superior Ave., Suite 300B, Newport Beach, CA 92663.

“For many women, breastfeeding presents challenges that can range from frustrating to painful. By offering convenient access to face-to-face consultations with lactation experts, we are hoping to support women’s efforts to breastfeed their babies successfully,” said Allyson Brooks, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., Ginny Ueberroth Executive Medical Director Endowed Chair, Hoag Women’s Health Institute, and Senior Physician Executive, Hoag.

Topics that women typically address with Pacify’s lactation experts include:

  • Crying/colic
  • Latching
  • Pumping
  • Picky eating
  • Sore nipples
  • Breastfeeding

Hoag advises women to download the app before they give birth, as part of the preparation for their newborns’ arrival. The app can be downloaded via the App Store for iPhones, or through Google Play for Android devices. After a woman’s baby is born, Hoag will provide the new mother with a unique code to access her Pacify membership through the app for free.

“The convenience of this app is particularly exciting for us, and it is just another example of how committed Hoag is to providing excellent care to our patients when and where they need it most,” said Dr. Brooks.
