Breastfeeding Newsletter - "Tips for pumping at work"
Many mothers decide to go back to work after having a baby and also desire to
continue to provide breastmilk exclusively for their baby because of it’s many
benefits. While the thought of pumping your milk at work may seem overwhelming
at first, you CAN do it with a little planning and knowledge. It is worth the effort,
considering the risks and costs of formula feeding, as well as the precious
breastfeeding relationship you will be able to sustain by keeping your milk supply
going even while separated from your baby. Leaving your baby to go off to work is
easier when you get to nurse and snuggle with him when you get home! Here are
some tips to make the transition back to work easier for the breastfeeding mom.
Building Capital Campaign
Pike County Health Department, Home Care and Hospice launched a $1 million capital campaign, "Helping Hands. . . Caring Hearts," on September 2009 to raise funds for a new facility. A new facility will enable us to operate out of one building instead of two to fully serve the residents of Pike County..
A variety of fund raising events are being held along with one on one visits to area businesses, organizations, churches and residents.
