Breastfeeding ClinicIt's been almost a year since Sabetha Community Hospital and Nemaha County Community Health Services formed a partnership for the provision of a Breastfeeding Clinic for moms and babes in Northeast Kansas. The clinic is located at Nemaha County Community Health Services - Sabetha Office.
Effective May 1, 2018, there will be new hours of operation for the Breastfeeding Clinic. Listed below are the highlights of the changes.
- Breastfeeding Clinic clients will now schedule individual visits on Tuesdays and Fridays between 8:30am-5:00pm. The Breastfeeding Clinic will remain located at NCCHS - 1004 Main St. in Sabetha, (785) 284-2152. Visits are expected to last around an hour.
- A prenatal consult between 36-40 weeks is HIGHLY encouraged! Really, this is ideal for any prenatal momma, as even those who choose NOT to breastfeed can experience breast changes.
- Misty Scott, RN, BSN, IBSCLC will be available to consult with ANY postpartum mom in the Sabetha Community Hospital, Monday through Friday, as able -- please have your nurse at the hospital, call and setup an appointment for your hospital consult.
- During the hospital consult, Misty will be talking with the moms (whether they are breastfeeding or not) about the Healthy Start Home Visit Program, in an attempt to encourage more Nemaha County (plus those in Morrill and Fairview) homes to take advantage of this free in-home service. If clients prefer, Misty can also provide this information at the office instead of a home visit. This is a great opportunity for a weight check and breastfeeding consult in the comfort of their own home. This is a FREE service, provided through the Maternal-Child Health Grant.
