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. 

This is an indispensable tool for breastfeeding education and promotion. As our hospital tackles the steps to becoming Baby Friendly, the email content supports and reinforces our outreach to patients and their families.
