Breastfeed Orange NC: Healthcare Award

Thank you for your commitment to support nursing families in our community! 

We encourage you to apply for the Breastfeed Orange NC Business and Community Partner Award. Healthcare clinics and offices are community partners and employers, and it is a great starting place to show your support for nursing families! Community Partners are businesses and organizations that welcome breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and human milk feeding families. Businesses/Employers are workplaces that support lactating employees. 

We also are excited to offer the Healthcare Provider: Lactation Support Award. The award celebrates your work to provide lactation support for your families.
