Posted on November 14, 2022

South Central Regional Medical Center is a Baby-Friendly Designated Facility.

As part of the Baby-Friendly Designation, SCRMC provides lactation support. Lactation consultants are professional breastfeeding specialists trained to teach mothers how to feed their baby. They help women experiencing breastfeeding problems, such as latching difficulties, painful nursing and low milk production. A lactation consultant also helps babies who are not gaining enough weight. This service is offered to the community by SCRMC with certified lactation consultant, Ashley Floyd, WHNP, CLC, for families in the area.
