Karen Flynn, WIC Program Administrator with the Vermont Department of Health and Tricia Cassi, BSS, IBCLC and Vermont WIC Program Breastfeeding Coordinator, lead participants in the "Handy Reminders for the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding" during the recent workshop held at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital. The workshop is divided into two eight-hour education days and is held at hospitals around the state. The training is intended to provide maternity care staff with the knowledge and skills to promote, protect and support a mother's decision to breastfeed. The second of the two workshops at NVRH will be held on Friday, Oct. 5. This collaborative throughout the states shows an ongoing commitment to optimal health outcomes for Vermont mothers, infants and families; it's sponsored by WIC and VCHIP with the goal to improve breastfeeding rates across the state.
