Information about the webinar presentation:

Breastfeeding is an evidence based early intervention for reducing risk for obesity and diabetes. The hospital/medical culture of supplementation can and does affect the length of exclusive breastfeeding and ultimately the infant’s future health status. 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. The IHS promotes and tracks breastfeeding via efforts such as the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, the Diabetes Treatment and Prevention Program Best Practices, and GPRA.
