OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital is excited to announce the expansion of lactation services to support mothers as well as newborns and infants.

The services include outpatient lactation services as well as becoming an OhioHealth Mothers’ Milk Drop location. The hospital celebrated the expansion of these services through a ribbon cutting on February 24. The celebration was live streamed by the Richland Area Chamber & Economic Development on Facebook.

“Mansfield Hospital Maternity Care offers a higher level of care for mothers and fragile newborns. We’re fortunate to have a six-year partnership with Nationwide Children’s pediatric hospitalists, who care for children, including newborns, at Mansfield Hospital. In addition, we also have the only Level 2 Special Care Nursery in the area for newborns with additional needs,” said Kelly Payne, MSN, RNC-NIC, administrative nurse manager of mother-infant/Special Care Nursery at Mansfield Hospital. “Now we’re expanding our support for lactating and non-lactating mothers, so newborns and infants can receive the nourishment they need.”
