Early problems with breastfeeding cause about half of mothers to abandon breastfeeding in the first postpartum weeks. This session will provide information on multiple, simple ways that obstetricians, midwives, nursing and other staff can support the normal process of breast feeding. Breast feeding is an evidence based early intervention for reducing risk for obesity and diabetes. Tips and tools for increased implementation and sustainability of baby friendly hospital practices will be shared. The IHS promotes and tracks breast feeding via efforts such as the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, the Diabetes Treatment and Prevention Program Best Practices, and GPRA.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Alter practice routines that interfere with the natural process of breastfeeding in order to support a more optimal breastfeeding duration.
2. Enhance and improve advice and support to new mothers to help prevent early problems.
3. Describe the benefits of breastfeeding related to obesity.
