We are pleased to share the many healthcare providers who have affirmed their commitment to breastfeeding family friendly community partners and employers. Check out the many healthcare providers who have made a commitment to supporting nursing families and lactating employees.

We would love to celebrate your support for breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and human milk feeding families in our community!

  • Apply now for the 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. 
  • Apply for the Healthcare Provider: Lactation Support Award. The award celebrates your healthcare clinic and office commitment to provide lactation support for your families.

All of our healthcare providers affirm that:

  • Breastfeeding families are always welcome and respected. Families will never be treated poorly, asked to stop nursing, or asked to cover up or move.
  • All lactating employees are allowed breaks to express milk or nurse their children, and access to a private space for expressing milk or nursing that is not a bathroom. The space is lockable and shielded from view, includes an electrical outlet, and has hand hygiene available.
  • They do not advertise infant formula or related products.

In addition, the UNC Women’s Hospital received the Baby-Friendly Designation. The Orange County Health Department and UNC Family Medicine received the NCBC Mother-Baby Clinic award for outpatient healthcare clinics.
