Partnership Expands with Tri-County Health Department to Support Breastfeeding
Every Child Pediatrics is proud to announce that we are expanding our partnership with Tri-County Health Department to encourage and support our families with breastfeeding. Last summer, we began hosting the Tri-County Health Department's Baby Cafe in our Thornton building. This weekly free drop-in program provides a relaxed environment for moms to chat and get support. And now, Every Child Pediatrics is working with Tri-County Health Department to make our offices more breastfeeding-friendly with lactation training for our staff, lactation equipment and more. Tri-County Health Department staff also provide lactation consultation to our families and help our families apply for WIC, Medicaid and other programs. Learn about Tri-County Health Department's breastfeeding resources here. Read the press release about the Baby Cafe here.
