Breastfeeding has a public health benefit

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion “Breastfeeding? Why are you interested in that?” These are the things I heard from my family when I was explaining to them my internship for the spring semester. I have always had an interest in maternal- and child health, and when I saw this internship with Schenectady County Public Health Services working on the Creating Breastfeeding Friendly Communities (CBFC) grant, I jumped at the opportunity.Interning with a local county health department has given me a different perspective on breastfeeding and public health in general. Working with my mentors on the CBFC grant has allowed me the opportunity to see all the benefits breastfeeding can provide mothers and babies in our community.The CBFC grant has multiple goals, but outreach in our communities is what has impressed me the most. The grant enables us to provide multiple baby cafés throughout the Capital Region for mothers and their partners to receive breastfeeding support or just provide a listening ear as they navigate parenthood. There have been multiple moms of various racial, ethnic, educational and social backgrounds who attend. Observing them sharing their stories of motherhood is heartwarming and has broken down barriers.In recognition of IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) Day on March 7, I believe the need for trained lactation professionals to provide breastfeeding support to all families in our communities is essential. Continued support is necessary to ensure all families have access to lactation support within their community. Seeing how effective this grant has been thus far makes me excited to see how this will change the landscape of infant feeding in the future.Martha LitardoSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcylast_img read more
