Breastfeeding Newsletter - "The Importance of Support"
I recently spoke with a mom who was feeling discouraged about breastfeeding but by the end of our conversation she sounded strengthened and more confident. She stated, "One of the most important parts of keeping with breastfeeding is the support from other moms and family members." I could not agree more! Moms can find support in a variety of different people and places. It doesn’t have to be an expert or a specialized group; a listening ear can make all the difference in the world. The journey a breastfeeding mom takes may bring her to places of doubt, insecurity, and questioning along with pride, joy, and love. An encouraging word from a friend or even a stranger may make all the difference to a mom. Support is such an essential key to successful breastfeeding and moms can find friendship and strength several different ways.
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.
