Department Encouraging New
Moms To Breastfeed Infants
Laboratories indicated that only 42
percent of North Carolina infants
were breastfeeding in the hospital
with 13 percent still breastfeeding at
six months of age.
During the first six months of life,
breast milk provides an infant's total
nutrient requirements and protects
the infant from many early diseases
and infections. Breastfeeding can al
so reduce the mother's risk of breast
and ovarian cancer.
Locally, the county health depart
ment offers education and support
for breastfeeding mothers through
the Special Supplemental Food Pro
gram for Women, Infants and Chil
dren (WIC). Support services in
clude individual help for breastfeed
ing mothers by trained nurses and
nutritionists, a free manual breast
pump and written information.
More information is available
from Janet Shew or Pat Weaver of
the WIC program, 253-4381, 763
1312 or 457-5281.
If more new mothers chose to
breastfeed, babies and mothers
would both benefit, according to the
Brunswick County Health Depart
The department is cooperating
with other agencies in observing
World Breastfeeding Week, Aug. 1-7,
which has as its theme "the Mother
Friendly Workplace Initiative."
Launched by the World Health
Organization and UN1CEF, the ini
tiative encourages workplaces to
create environments that support
mothers' efforts to both work and
provide breast milk to their infants.
Because women make up such a
large proportion of the workforce in
North Carolina, said health educator
Jan Reichenbach, the initiative
"stands to significantly improve the
health of our infants."
She said that while many people
know the benefits of breastfeeding,
few people do it, especially in North
Carolina. A 1991 survey by Ross
