DALLAS – The International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) and International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA) have recognized Methodist Charlton and Methodist Dallas medical centers for excellence in lactation care. Methodist Charlton received the IBCLC Care Award in recognition for staffing International Board Certified Lactation Consultants and providing a lactation program that is available 5-7 days a week for breastfeeding families. In addition, Methodist Charlton demonstrated that it has provided recent breastfeeding training for medical staff that care for new families, and has recently completed activities that help protect, promote, and support breastfeeding. Lactation consultants focus on preventive care, so they are available during pregnancy to assess the mother and provide information on how to get off to a good start. They continue that assistance after the baby is born by helping mothers latch their babies appropriately, answering their questions, and continuing to support them as their baby grows. They assist mothers returning to work or school, and help mothers in more unusual situations such as breastfeeding more than one baby, nursing a sick or premature infant, and dealing with other challenges.
