The National Breastfeeding Center (NBfC) is pleased to announce the endorsement of The NEPA Breastfeeding Center at Pediatric Associates of Kingston, effective July 14, 2017. This endorsement builds on the more than 30 years of experience that Pediatric Associates of Kingston has in offering breastfeeding support to mothers and babies in our community.
“Our Breastfeeding Center is the only nationally certified breastfeeding program in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Through this national certification, mothers, babies – and employers with workplace lactation programs – can trust that we provide comprehensive, top quality lactation services” says Jeffery R. Kile MD, owner of Pediatric Associates of Kingston.
The NEPA Breastfeeding Center was established to provide private lactation services for all breastfeeding mothers and babies in our communities. The center provides breastfeeding support and counseling by international board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) led by Darnetta Yukso, CRNP, IBCLC. The consultants work with the family’s obstetricians, pediatricians and family doctors to provide a structure of care continuity. “Our goal is to be a resource to all that need sound, evidence based breast feeding advice and care,” says Darnetta Yusko, CRNP, IBCLC.
The National Breastfeeding Center seal of endorsement is given to medical practices that have a proven track record of supporting breastfeeding mothers and infants at a significant level of quality. These practices are able to work with the most difficult and challenging breastfeeding problems, provide education on a wide range of lactation issues, coordinate care between families and their employers, insurance companies and doctors, and offer high quality pumps and supplies to help support breastfeeding duration.
To earn the NBfC endorsement, medical offices must go through a comprehensive audit and review of their practices and policies by the NBfC, including compling with the WHO Code and demonstrating how they surpass the stringent criteria set forth in the application process.
“NEPA Breastfeeding Center provides superior outpatient lactation services and we are delighted to recognize this center through our official NBfC endorsement,” says Susanne Madden, chief operating officer of the NBfC. “They are constantly innovating the services they provide to the pediatric community and have consistently invested in on-going training and education of their staff and providers. We look forward to assisting them expand their breastfeeding services and resources to employers that are interested in developing workplace lactation programs.”
