Home Health Support for Breastfeeding Moms
August is National Breastfeeding Month, which is a time to promote the benefits of breastfeeding and build a public platform of support for babies, parents, families and communities. This year, the theme for National Breastfeeding Month is Together We Can Do Great Things, which celebrates the power and impact of our collective efforts. The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee’s vision of thriving families and communities cannot be achieved by any one person, or by just one organization. It happens with daily effort by us all, and by working together to make change.
Home health care is an important support for women who breastfeed and an important source of information when women are making the choice to do so.
Stephanie Mozzer, director of Maternal Child Health at Visiting Nurse and Hospice for VT & NH (VNH) says her organization visits some moms-to-be before they give birth.
