Appalachian Breastfeeding Network member Kailey Littleton speaks on behalf of our May Practice of the Month: "I work for Family Medical Care, a federally qualified health center through CHANGE, Inc, which is based in the Northern Panhandle of WV. Family medical care offers pediatric services at both its Newell, WV and Wintersville, OH sites. Because I am also an IBCLC, I am able to see both my primary pediatric patients and their mothers for breastfeeding difficulties, as well as consults from elsewhere in the community. I do revise both tongue and lip ties. Our FQHC is also one of the largest OBGYN practices in the area, so I also see many mothers prenatally to address their specific breastfeeding needs/concerns. Finally, because we are an FQHC, nearly all insurances (including all OH and WV Medicaids!) are accepted. Link to our website: http://www.changeinc.org/fmcchc/pediatrics/"
Each month, our ABN board uses a random number generator to pick our member of the month. In an effort to showcase our many different members in many different fields from all over Appalachia working towards the same goal: transforming breastfeeding culture in Appalachia.
