Wood County’s Comprehensive Lactation Care System

By Wood County Health Department

Wood County created this lactation care toolkit to highlight their local work on breastfeeding education and support as part of the CPHMC project.

Located in rural Central Wisconsin, Wood County has a high population of residents with limited access to healthy foods, opportunities for physical activity and limited referrals for appropriate services. The Wood County Health Department, through the collaboration with the Community Partnerships for Healthy Mothers and Children project, has implemented policy, systems, and environmental change by cultivating community partnerships in various settings to increase access to healthy foods, physical activity, and breastfeeding services, as well as develop a framework for sustainability for years to come. The policy, systems and environmental changes made through this grant work will greatly improve the health, as well as health equity, in Wood County.
