Stellis Health is committed to supporting nursing mothers and assuring they have the needed support and resources to continue providing breast milk to their babies after they return to work from parental leave. “Healthy families are at the core of our mission and breastfeeding is vital to the health and development of children and families,” says Douglas Hanson, CEO of Stellis Health.
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) recognizes workplaces that have demonstrated their commitment to supporting breastfeeding mothers by creating a workplace lactation support program and Stellis Health-Monticello Clinic was recently designated as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace by MDH. Specifically, Stellis Health-Monticello Clinic provides support from supervisors and colleagues for breastfeeding women as well as:
- Time including leave after birth and flexible scheduling to accommodate lactation breaks during work time
- Education for mothers, fathers and supervisors about the benefits of breastfeeding
- A private place to express milk
