Laurel Health – Benefits of Breastfeeding

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month - are you aware of the benefits?

 

by Melissa Bravo - August 30, 2016

Did you know that August is national breastfeeding awareness month?

Many organizations answered the 2011 national call to “participate in a society-wide approach to support mothers and babies who are breastfeeding.” That quote is taken from The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding publication.
That call to action is now in its seventh year and organization’s like the national Centers for Disease Control’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity “are committed to increasing breastfeeding rates throughout the United States and to promoting and supporting optimal breastfeeding practices toward the ultimate goal of improving the public’s health”.

Please, join us today here on Wellsboro Home Page, as we meet with local Laurel Health physician Dr. Jona Lamphier, and other members of the OBGYN unit at Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital, to learn more about the nutritional benefits of breastfeeding for the infant and mother.

Do you have questions about returning to work and how you’ll provide for your babies breastfeeding needs?

“Breast feeding is very empowering to women as mothers, and our job as lactation specialists and nurses in obstetrics is to equip women with the right tools and information so that they can be confident and successful in feeding their children the nutrition they need.” – Dawn Burke, RN, Lactation Specialist, Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital.

In today’s feature we will learn about some of the wellness services Laurel Health’s family of physicians has available for expectant parents and new mothers and also suggestions for helping new moms and their employers address the workplace needs of breastfeeding and breast pumping women.

For more information visit the OBGYN website of Susquehanna Health’s Wellsboro maternity care link for Soldiers + Sailor’s Memorial Hospital.

You can also visit the official website for Laurel Health Centers.
