For prenatal mamas who choose to deliver at a hospital, I recommend finding a Baby-Friendly Hospital! Baby-friendly hospitals give mamas the information, confidence and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue exclusively breastfeeding their babies. The staff at a baby friendly hospital is specifically trained in breastfeeding education to ensure mamas have the experience and assistance they need to be successful with nursing. The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) implements the 10 steps to successful breastfeeding and gives mamas every opportunity to feel supported and confident feeding their little ones. Find out if the hospital where you plan to deliver is baby friendly by going to babyfriendlyusa.org. There are a few of them here in NC, close to home!
