Our Maternal Child Care Department achieved "Center of Excellence" designation by completing Vermont Oxford Network Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (VONNAS) training. This is a universal education program for birthing hospitals in Kansas for standardization of care in identification, evaluation, treatment and safe discharge of infants with NAS.

With that in mind our Maternal Child Care staff has recently implemented the High 5 program at our facility and are striving for High 5 certification.

What can you expect from the High 5 program?

1.Skin-to-skin right after birth
If you do desire,your baby will be placed on your chest right after birth so you and baby can bond.

2.Nothing but breast milk
Your baby will thrive on your milk and nothing else unless medically indicated.

3."Rooming In"
Your baby may stay in your room(depending on delivery circumstances)so you can learn your baby's routine in regards to hunger cues.

4.No pacifiers or bottle nipples
Your baby needs to learn how to nurse at the breast without the interference or confusion of pacifiers or bottle nipples.

5.Breastfeeding resources
You will be given information for breastfeeding support in our community.
