Evidenced-Based Hospital Breastfeeding Initiative
Supported by the Washington State Perinatal Collaborative
- Breastfeeding is universally recognized as a low-cost intervention that protects the health of mothers and babies while reducing healthcare costs.
- Research shows that one key predictor of long term success with breastfeeding is getting off to a good start during the hospital stay.
- We are committed to keep on pace with national efforts to improve breastfeeding support.
- Joining this initiative will complement our in-depth staff breastfeeding education, and inpatient and outpatient lactation support.
