The Public Health Department of Madison and Dane County has a new website. It’s attractive, easy to navigate, and points out all the great services that public health offers our community. Why do I mention it here? Well, they dedicate an entire section of the site to breastfeeding support, including a description of their breastfeeding-related services, community lactation resources, and a whole page listing the good things about breastfeeding. Isn’t this great? Public health and WIC support of breastfeeding has come a long way.
Unfortunately their community lactation resources list is out of date and doesn’t have links to on-line information — so I’m not recommending that page as a good information resource right now. Hopefully this will be one of the things that gets fixed when they’ve had time to work with the new site for a while.
