Welcome to The Nursery Nook
The Nursery Nook at Kaweah Delta Health Care District is a family's resource for assistance in caring for their new baby. We will strive to provide excellent care, education, support and reassurance of new mothers, babies and families as they welcome their new baby into the family.
Our staff includes International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), Counselors, Childbirth Educators, Nurses and Doulas (labor coaches). Our mission is to help make breastfeeding easier by giving one-on-one or over phone support, we also have many years of experience educating, encouraging and helping women, men and babies.
We believe that the capacity of a family to nurture their infants can be significantly influenced by the quality and quantity of nurturing the family receives during the childbirth experience.
We are committed to providing the highest level of service and care available. This will be accomplished with our educational classes, support groups, Nursery Nook Store, Doulas, breastfeeding resources and services, pump rental station and more.
The Nursery Nook is also a retail store as well as a pump rental station, featuring Medela's Lactina and Symphony pumps. You may also rent an electronic baby scale to weigh your baby at home if needed. This specialty store is the only source in the county for many hard-to-find products for both mother and baby.
The staff is available to help you select the best breastpumps and products for you and your baby's particular need. Gift certificates are also available.
Nursery Nook Hours of operation: Monday-Friday 9:00am - 4:30pm
Infant massage is the ancient art that connects you deeply with your baby and enhances the bonding process. It helps you to understand your baby's nonverbal language. Infant massage can also be helpful in easing chest and nasal congestion, gas, colic, and GERD syndrome.
Each class is taught by an RN who is certified by the International Association of Infant Massage founded by Vimala McClure.
Free Weight Checks
The Nursery Nook has a drop in baby weigh station. New parents are welcome to come in and weigh their babies anytime between 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday. One of our breastfeeding counselors will assist you should you have any questions on how to use the Medela BabyChecker Scale. Some mothers are concerned about their milk supply or want to determine if baby is on the right track with their weight gain and may find this helpful. If you have a concern about the weight of your baby a one-on-one appointment can be made with our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. You may also rent a scale for home use.
If you or your baby or other children are sick with a cold, we ask that you wait until you are well to come to the Nursery Nook. This is for everyone's protection. We want everyone to feel comfortable when they bring their babies to our facility.
