HMG Pediatric Clinic Earns 5 Star Breastfeeding Designation

May 9, 2017 No Comments

Congratulations to the HMG Pediatric Clinic in Hays for earning a 5 star Kansas Breastfeeding Friendly Practice Designation! The entire staff went through an on-site training that focused on creating an environment in the clinic that is supportive of breastfeeding mothers.

Having an office policy, making physical changes to the office by hanging the “Breastfeeding Welcome Here” poster and window cling, and understanding community breastfeeding support available are important parts of the breastfeeding friendly designation.

The HMG Pediatric Clinic is one of just a few practices in the state who have earned 5 stars by having an IBCLC for breastfeeding support on site so providers can identify mothers who need help in the clinic and get them to a professional right away. Keep up the good work in Hays!
