Full-time Lactation Consultant on staff at Royal Inland Hospital

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) located in Kamloops, BC is responsible for serving a distance of over 215,000 km, a population of 750,000+, and delivers almost 1,300 babies each year.

RIH removed the position of a designated full time Lactation Consultant over 2 years ago and we are petitioning to bring that very important job back.

In November of 2016, The United Nations declared Breastfeeding to be a human right. Families of the Southern Interior deserve to have access to proper support when giving birth at RIH, whether they choose to breastfeed or not. A Lactation Consultants job is not only to provide education and support to breastfeeding families, but to ensure all families are informed in their choices and ensuring safety with infant feeding.

Thank you for taking the time to join us in our efforts to provide this change that will be in accordance with human rights and benefit the overall health of our community.
