Lactation support earns IBCLC Care Award

Madison Hospital is the first in North Alabama to earn the 2018 IBCLC Care Award for lactation support services.

Presented by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners and International Lactation Consultant Association, the Care Award recognizes hospitals that provide special training for nursing, medical and other staff that care for breastfeeding families, and that have implemented projects to promote, protect and support breastfeeding and the lactation consultant profession.

Madison Hospital’s lactation support program is overseen by International Board Certified Lactation Consultants Kristine Taff, RN, Margaret Pierce, RN, Stacy Ramirez, RN, and Elizabeth Dunaway.
