Our 2017 Breastfeeding Award Night had to be postponed till September, so we didn’t get to celebrate during National Breastfeeding Month. We had the Award Night at Baptist Hospital on September 21, 2017. We were able to honor an awardee for her support and advocacy for breastfeeding in our area. Jayne Voyles, RN, BSN, LCCE, FACCE, IBCLC Lactation Consultant at Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, FL is the recipient of the Frankie Mims Spirit of Service Award. For over 35 years, Jayne has tirelessly advocated for breastfeeding moms and babies with physicians, nurses and administrators, even when it was not the most accepted or popular stance. Even when not working in Lactation for employment, she has assisted numerous new mothers in many ways and is well known in all three hospitals and this community as a champion for breastfeeding! When you think of Jayne Voyles, that is what defines her. Many friends, colleagues, and former patients came to celebrate this award, which has been long overdue.
