Certified Lactation Consultant

  • We have a Certified Lactation Consultant (CLC) on staff to assist new mothers in starting or continuing with breast feeding. This FREE service is available to all Franklin families. For more information or to schedule an appointment call 414-425-9101.

FREE Car Seat Inspections  

  • With so many different types of infant carriers and booster seats, it is no wonder parents often ask "Does that look right to you?"  Just when you think you have the seat properly installed, it is time to move on to a bigger one.  Officials estimate that 80% of car seats are used incorrectly.  Call or email Kim Kringel, RN, at 414-425-9101 for an appointment to have your child's car seat checked.

Home Visits

  • Home visits are made to residents for a variety of reasons.  Families with a newborn are offered home visits and receive a letter describing our services.  These families are also offered visits when children are age appropriate for home safety assessments and developmental screenings.  A public health nurse will provide services upon a referral from hospitals, doctors, community agencies, or personal request.  Call 414-425-9101 to request a home visit.
