Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Celebrates World Breastfeeding Week

August 19, 2014—Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (EHMC) celebrated World Breastfeeding Week with an event called, “Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life!” During the special event, EHMC’s Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) provided important information and advice on breastfeeding and offered soon-to-be parents the chance to enter a raffle to win a Medela “Pump-in Style” electronic breast pump.

“We provided information on infant feeding to employees and patients to inform them of the life-long, healthy outcomes that can result from following through with a breastfeeding plan,” said Ines Serna, Childbirth Education/Community Affairs Coordinator at EHMC. “Mothers who choose to breastfeed will need a team of helpers including family, friends and healthcare professionals, and we are here to offer that support to them.”
