Milford Regional Medical Center Receives Breastfeeding Achievement Award

Milford Regional’s Lactation Consultants have been honored with the 2012 Breastfeeding Achievement Award from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.This award is in recognition of our Breastfeeding is Beautiful (BIB) Support Group and our efforts to support nursing mothers after they return home from the hospital. They offer free outpatient consults by phone or in person to answer any questions or concerns related to breastfeeding, assist moms as they return to work or school and continue to support new moms as their baby grows.

“The Maternity Center at Milford Regional has always been on the leading edge of services for expectant moms and their babies,” says Nurse Manager Rose Galimi, RN. “Our lactation consultants are to be commended for providing comprehensive breastfeeding services to our moms before, during and after discharge from Milford Regional…something not found at all hospitals. Recognition by the Department of Public Health for this exceptional care is a testament to the quality of their care.”

The Breastfeeding is Beautiful Support Group provides a relaxed, informal environment for mom-to-mom peer support and offers the services of a lactation consultant to answer any questions. For more information call 508-422-2960 or go to milfordregional.org, classes and lectures – support groups.
