Nurses at Black River Memorial Hospital, Mya Elmhorst and Luci Bue, recently became certified lactation counselors through the Healthy Children’s Center for Breastfeeding.

This program provided training for Mya and Luci to help further educate and support breastfeeding moms on subjects such as how to help a baby latch. They can now assist new moms initiate breastfeeding and help if problems arise. They can also teach mothers how to work through those struggles. Elmhorst said, “This training will help us have a more positive affect while supporting new moms who are learning how to breastfeed. Our training also provides greater patient access to lactation counselors here at BRMH.”
