Lactation support, tailor made for your family.
Since 2015, Columbia Lactation Care has been the Midlands source for judgement-free individualized infant feeding support that is kind, compassionate, and empathetic to all families. Whether you’re latching, pumping, breastfeeding, chestfeeding, bottle feeding or mixed feeding; from conception through weaning, we’re here for you.


Inspire Speech & Feeding LLC offers innovative and holistic lactation care that gets to the root of latch issues, weak suck, painful nursing, low milk supply, pumping difficulties, slow weight gain, feeding refusal, and more! We have immediate lactation appointments available for both in-home and in-office visits. There is no surcharge for home visits. We service Columbia, Irmo, and Lexington areas. In addition, our RN/CLC is available for evening and weekend appointments! Lactation needs are not always uniform, and we aim to get you access to the care you need right when you need it. Lactation package includes free phone consultation prior to initial visit. Additionally, Inspire offers expert care in the area of oral function and feeding therapy as it relates to feeding at all stages of your baby’s growth. We specialize in addressing oral motor weaknesses, tongue and lip-tie, medically complex feeding issues, premature infant feeding, as well as other feeding related diagnoses such as cleft lip and palate. Inspire also offers occupational therapy to address your baby’s gross motor needs and other conditions that affect feeding such as torticollis. Call Inspire Speech & Feeding at (803) 704-4759 to schedule. Feeding your baby should be a pleasant experience, and we are here to help families grow happy and healthy eaters!
