Breast Feeding Information
Breastfeeding is one of the most important things a mother can do to protect the health of her infant. Research has shown that breast milk is the best food for a baby in their first year of life. Breastfeeding provides many health, nutritional, economical and emotional benefits for both mother and baby.
A Public Health Nurse from the Clark County Health Department visits you at your home or other preferred location throughout your pregnancy to provide you with a variety of educational materials. An individualized plan is made after the first visit to meet the needs of the client and focus on areas of concern.
