As the school year starts for most youngsters, pediatric patients at Janet Weis Childrens Hospital often spend more time in a hospital room versus the classroom. Thanks to Barbara Morgan, Geisingers Hospital School Teacher, our youngest patients are able to keep up with their school work and not fall behind in their studies. I love what I do. I provide services for the families and I am flexible so we can work around the childs care.

Theresa Hails is the proud mom to 4-month old daughter, Oaklyn. But the mother-of-two and Geisinger OB-GYN registered nurse admits she struggled with breastfeeding after giving birth to Oaklyn at Geisinger Wyoming Valley in April. Its part of my job to work with new moms and help them be able to breastfeed their babies. And although breastfeeding is so natural, its not always easy. I had trouble getting her to latch the right way. With the help of lactation consultant Nicole Williams, RN, Theresa got the breastfeeding support she needed to reach her goals with little blue-eyed Oaklyn. She encourages other new moms to do the same. Breastfeeding can be difficult, but theres nothing to be ashamed of, especially seeking help. It is so encouraging to have someone kind and compassionate who can guide you one step at a time. To support nursing employees and visitors who prefer privacy while breastfeeding or pumping, Geisinger recently installed Mamava lactation pods at three of its hospitals. While all Geisinger locations are breastfeeding-friendly, the new Mamava suite offers a more-private space for mom to bond with baby. . . . #Caring #NationalBreastfeedingMonth #BreastfeedingAwarenessMonth #Mamava #BreastfeedingFriendly #BreastfeedingMama
