RN, BSN, CLC, ANLC
Cindi Brooks Cain RN, BSN, CLC, ANLC is an Advanced Nurse Lactation Consultant at College Hill Health Center. She graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and was presented with an award for going above and beyond in Family Nursing. Her trainings in lactation have occurred through working as an RN in Obstetrics; working at WIC (Women, Infants, and Children); and working with breastfeeding experts and authors and faculty of The Healthy Children Project including Karin Cadwell PhD, FAAN, RN, IBCLC; Lois D. W. Arnold PhD, MPH, ALC; Anna Blair PhD, CLC, IBCLC; Kajsa Brimdyr, PhD, CLC; and Cindy Turner-Maffei, MA, IBCLC.
In her practice she uses evidence based information to educate pregnant women and the community about the importance of breastfeeding. Education gives them the knowledge they need to make an educated decision about infant feeding and what is best for them.
It’s important that women learn the health effects, the psychosocial effects, the economic and environmental benefits of breastfeeding. It is also important that pregnant women learn how to breastfeed. In our society women rarely see other women breastfeeding. This is one of many reasons women need help as well as support when it comes to breastfeeding. Cindi offers this help for the mother before and after the birth. Some early challenges are normal, but others may be a sign of a breastfeeding problem. If a mother experiences pain or any other problem when breastfeeding she can receive assistance in achieving her breastfeeding goals at College Hill Health Center.
Cindi’s passions besides breastfeeding education include the first hour after delivery when babies go through nine distinctive stages when held skin to skin. She states this is such an important time for mothers and babies for bonding, breastfeeding, and their physiological processes. Research has shown the huge benefits of this even in the years that follow. She encourages Baby-Friendly USA, The Healthy Children Project, the Surgeon Generals Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding 2011, and any organization whose focus is to support, protect and promote breastfeeding. Her goal is for the mothers and babies to have continuity of care using evidence based practice throughout the health care systems in the community.
