GENESEO, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2022 – The Finger Lakes Breastfeeding Partnership alongside Pivital Public Health Partnership are working together to ensure that all mothers in the Finger Lakes Region have access to resources to help with breastfeeding.

The positive impacts of breastfeeding have been well documented.  In addition to the numerous health benefits that children receive by breastfeeding, babies are also better protected against some short and long-term illnesses and diseases including asthma, type one diabetes and sudden infant death syndrome.  Babies that are breastfed are also less likely to suffer from ear infections and stomach bugs.

Mothers also receive secondary health benefits from breastfeeding including lower risks of ovarian cancer, type two diabetes and high blood pressure.

In an effort to educate mothers on these benefits and to provide them with the highest level of access to breastfeeding resources, Finger Lakes Breastfeeding Partnership and Pivital Public Health Partnership have established a short, simple survey to better gauge how to help mothers.  The 15-question survey can be completed in fewer than three minutes and will provide valuable insight.
