The future of telehealth: Why virtual care should be status quo for new parents

The COVID-19 pandemic supercharged the uptake of telehealth for all types of care including virtual lactation support. But telehealth is much more than a flash in the pan. In fact, evidence suggests that it should be part of the standard of care, especially for lactation support.

This fall, Pacify's Executive Director of Government and Public Health Programs Katelyn McAdams presented a report on the power of virtual lactation support at the 2021 American Public Health Association Conference.

Watch the full presentation above to learn how virtual lactation care can improve health outcomes, especially for vulnerable populations.


"We all deserve access to a culture of health – living as long as you can, as well as you can and having a short but glorious ending. It also means having a system in place that ensures we can all achieve it." 

– APHA Executive Director Georges Benjamin, MD
