Breast Milk – Pumping and Storing

Pumping and storing breast milk allows you to have a supply of milk for your baby when it is needed. This can be a good option for moms who return to work after having a baby.

Keeping up a supply of breast milk can be a challenge for moms who return to work outside the home. You will need to pump and collect breast milk during the day while at the office.

Proper planning, support, and the correct equipment can help you continue to breastfeed, even after returning to work outside the home.

A very sad day to the world of breastfeeding advocacy

labbok_miriam_738x714-738x714

Dr. Miriam Harriet Labbok (1949-2016)

Pittsboro, NC

Miriam Harriet Labbok, M.D., M.P.H., an internationally respected and influential

expert on breastfeeding and maternal and child health, died on August 13, 2016.

Faced with a sudden and demanding health challenge, she continued to inspire

family and friends with her tenacity, fortitude, and sense of humor.

Born in Trenton, NJ, Dr. Labbok graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and

received her M.D. and M.P.H. degrees from Tulane University. In her distinguished

40-year career she promoted the health and developmental benefits of

breastfeeding, particularly in the developing world, improving the lives of countless

mothers and children worldwide. Dr. Labbok recently retired from her posts as

Professor of Maternal and Child Health at the University of North Carolina Gillings

School of Global Public Health and as Director of the School’s Carolina Global

Breastfeeding Institute, of which she was the founder. She previously held positions

at UNICEF, USAID, and at The Johns Hopkins and Georgetown Universities. A

prolific researcher and writer, Dr. Labbok contributed to many textbooks on

maternal and child health and was an author of more than one hundred fifty

scholarly articles.

Dr. Labbok was a gifted and dedicated teacher and mentor, giving generously of her

skills and knowledge to students and colleagues in the US and abroad. She traveled

the world, spreading her commitment to healthy mothers and happy, thriving

babies. Her home was decorated with paintings and pottery she loved to collect, and

the many creative– and sometimes tasty– souvenirs she loved to buy in the course of

her travels.

Dr. Labbok was a much-loved cousin, friend, and godmother, known for her incisive

intelligence, her ready laugh, and her ceaseless generosity. She is survived by her

loving sister Dorothy Labbok, also of Pittsboro, and many relatives, friends, and

colleagues.

Her funeral service will be held on Monday, August 15 at 2 PM at Judea Reform

Congregation, 1933 West Cornwallis Road, Durham, NC 27705.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to the The Miriam Labbok

Program Research CGBI Acceleration Endowment Fund at the Carolina Global

Breastfeeding Institute. Checks can be written to the Public Health Foundation and

sent to SPH Advancement, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, 107 Rosenau

Hall, Campus Box 7400, Chapel Hill, NC 27599. Please note “In Memory of Miriam

Labbok” on the check’s memo line.

Breastfeeding Plan for Late Preterm Infants

Please share with any mothers who might be interested:

 For my research, I must have a focus group of six to eight late preterm mothers who have used supplementation and pumping to help feed their breastfeeding late preterm infants. We will meet and critique a breastfeeding plan that I have designed and changes will be made per their suggestions. I have attached the flyer. There is compensation available for participating. 

Thanks!
