Chris Clark is a passionate professional with knowledge based on her extensive study, years of experience, and personal history as the mother of four children including one preemie. She was in fact the first mother in the USA of a small preemie to do skin-to-skin contact (kangaroo care), in which subject she has particular insights. Her profound training nurtures mother, child, and family long after they leave the hospital. I recommend her work for every hospital in the western world.
A major focus for HealthPartners is improving the health and well-being of children from pregnancy to age 5. Our organization strongly believes that breastfeeding is a key component to ensuring optimal child development and health, and I can’t emphasize enough how hugely important Chris is to this work!
