Nursing organization expands services


NORTH ADAMS — Berkshire Nursing Families Inc., a nonprofit lactation consulting organization, has expanded its lactation services throughout the entire county.

These services, which have been offered in North County for 20 years, are now available in both Central and South County. BNF had been working towards securing reliable funding to support its program in both Central and South County and recently received a grant from the Berkshire United Way that made the expansion of its services possible.

BNF's mission is to enhance the life-long health of its community through the promotion and support of breastfeeding. BNF delivers a continuum of expert lactation support from pregnancy through a baby's first six months. Information:
