We are pleased to share the many healthcare providers who have affirmed their commitment to breastfeeding family friendly community partners and employers. We would love to celebrate your support for Breastfeeding Family Friendly Communities, too. Apply now for the Breastfeeding Friendly award. Then, check out the many healthcare providers who have received the Breastfeeding Family Friendly award.
If you are an outpatient healthcare clinic, consider also applying for the Mother-Baby Clinic award through the North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition (NCBC).
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 and the Women’s Birth and Wellness Center received the Baby-Friendly Designation for hospitals and birthing centers; and the Orange County Health Department and UNC Family Medicine received the NCBC Mother-Baby Clinic award for outpatient healthcare clinics.
