UNC Hospitals a breastfeeding-friendly business

Congratulations to UNC Hospitals for winning the Breastfeeding-friendly Business Award. This award is a designation that signifies that a business has taken simple, cost-effective actions to support employees and its customers who are breastfeeding.

UNC Hospitals was listed as “Very Best” as a business and employer according to the guidelines listed for that category.

“We provide lactation support to patients, employees as well as any people who utilize our facility,” says Angela Pittman, RN BSN MBA/HCM, nurse manager of the Maternity Care Center. “We hold breastfeeding classes, assist with feedings, and consult patients regardless of the service line the patient belongs to. We also designate lactation clinic visitor appointments as well as work with the pediatric and OB clinics to see patients for clinic visits.”
