Abstract

Community Health Centers of Burlington (CHCB), a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), provides healthcare services including social work and financial assistance to these New American communities. The flagship site, Riverside, provides a specialized OB clinic where many of these community women obtain prenatal and postnatal care. Continuing to understand the barriers these communities and families face in providing the recommended healthcare to their newborns allows mission-driven CHCB to most effectively communicate, support, and effectively direct resources to these barriers. Barriers and challenges to breastfeeding were identified during this rotation through confidential interactions with patients, shared with the staff and providers at CHCB.
