“Education about the birth process will give you the foundation for a positive experience,” says Lee Ann Romeo, RNC, CCE, CLC. Her background of more than 25 years in labor and delivery and an additional ten years as UHC’s Childbirth Educator and Lactation Counselor, has presented Romeo with the opportunity to work with many expectant mothers. Romeo’s comforting demeanor, matched with her expertise in this field, offer encouragement and reassurance throughout each course, for both expectant mothers and their support systems.

Our hospital and birthing center staff have received honors for our dedication to helping expectant mothers, especially with the process of breastfeeding. In 2019, UHC received international recognition, as a designated Baby-Friendly Hospital by Baby-Friendly USA Inc. Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) is the authority for the implementation and a universal program, sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Expectant mothers can learn about the breastfeeding process within one of the virtual courses now offered by UHC OBGYN.
