Urgent Reminder for Hospitals to Participate in mPINC Survey
The 2018 national survey of Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) is currently in the field. All hospitals with maternity services in the United States and Territories have been contacted at least once. Of facilities that have received their survey, FEWER THAN HALF HAVE SUBMITTED THEIR RESPONSES!!!! If you were contacted to complete the survey and do not believe you have received it yet, please look for an e-mail from CDCMPINCSURVEY@battelle.org. Please check your junk e-mail folder, too. Please share this information with colleagues at your hospitals to confirm that they have participated in the survey. To learn more about the mPINC survey, visit the Web site: https://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/data/mpinc/index.htm.

VICTORY! Pregnant Workers Act Signed into Law!
Senate Bill 18, the Pregnant Workers Act, was signed into law by Gov. Bevin. This is a great leap forward for protecting breastfeeding, working mothers.
If you are interested in working on implementing this new law, please contact Doraine Bailey, KLIC Legislative Liaison, at doraineb@hotmail.com.

      Congratulations New IBCLCs!

      Did you Certify or Recertify in 2018?
      Let us know!

      IBLCE does not share the names of new certificants with the professional organizations. Take a moment to let us know if you're recently IBCLC certified or recertified by emailing info@klicbreastfeeding.org.  If you are a resident of Kentucky or Southern Indiana, we'd like to recognize your achievement.

      Also, if you achieved another lactation certificate, such as CLC, CLS, or CLE, please let us know. These companies do not share the names of their graduates with us either.
