News & Events

 

CHI Health is a huge supporter of the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition and of breastfeeding families across the state. They work throughout various communities with activities such as hosting breastfeeding support groups, in-hospital and in-clinic lactation help, and aiding in the education of nurses, doctors, and lactation consultants to provide the best, evidence-based practices within their systems. We are lucky to have the support of CHI Health and we look forward to continuing to work with them in improving breastfeeding across Nebraska.

For this week “Meet the Community Monday”, we are honored to feature one of the fantastic photographers who was kind enough to donate their time and skills to support our breastfeeding photography fundraiser. Ricki Strange lives in Papillion, Nebraska and is a family and children photographer for the Papillion and Omaha Nebraska communities. Ricki did an interview with us about her business, breastfeeding, and all about her photography experiences- read the interview here!

  • “The Community Breastfeeding Initiative grants provided by the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition have been the catalyst for our area in Southeast Nebraska to build breastfeeding advocacy and support services. The five counties of Southeast Nebraska that make up our Southeast Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition included some knowledgeable and passionate individuals, but the support of the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition allowed us to bring those people together, to build a base of professional breastfeeding providers, to educate and advocate, and to form a coalition that continues to meet and look at gaps, barriers, needs, and opportunities in our community to increase breastfeeding rates and support.” – Brooke Chaney, Southeast District Health Department
