BREASTFEEDING EDUCATION FOR PATIENTS and staff
Promoting exclusive breastfeeding can help your hospital improve patient outcomes and satisfaction – while reducing the lifetime risk of diabetes, asthma, obesity, heart disease, osteoporosis and several types of cancer for both moms and babies.
In this era of value-based care, hospitals are being held accountable for the health outcomes and preventive care of their patients.
Two distinct messaging series educate patients and hospital staff with evidence-based content that supports the recommendations of the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee, World Health Organization, Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Breastfeeding Patient – Guides mothers from week 35 of pregnancy through their baby’s first birthday with content on:
- Benefits of breastfeeding for both baby and mother
- Breastfeeding techniques
- What to expect from childbirth through age 1
Breastfeeding Staff – Trains hospital staff on criteria recommended by the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee and Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative to:
- Promote, guide and support exclusive breastfeeding in the hospital immediately following childbirth
- Offer continued support to the mother upon discharge.
