CCMH offers inpatient and outpatient lactation consultation for all breastfeeding, or eager to breastfeed, moms. Ashley Donscheski, RN and Angie Wallace, RN are both Certified Lactation Consultants. They are dedicated to the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding and lactation in their work to prevent and solve breastfeeding problems.
Research has shown that the education required of CLC's before certification is associated with improved breastfeeding outcomes. Ashley and Angie completed 45 hours of classroom education with course competencies and a final exam. CLCs Ashley and Angie are two of just 18,000 CLC's in the US. Angie and Ashley both work at CCMH as labor and delivery nurses.
On Tuesday mornings, Ashley or Angie are available from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at CCMH to meet with mothers breastfeeding, or those with an interest in breastfeeding. Individual counseling is available during this time as drop in. Outside of Tuesday mornings, lactation consulting is available by appointment only. Spanish-speaking services are also available.
