Baby Friendly USA Birth and Beyond Lactation Training

Birth and Beyond Lactation training is a valuable certification for all nurses currently working for; or entering the maternal child health environment.

The Baby Friendly USA Hospital Initiative is a global program. This initiative encourages the implementation of the Ten Steps To Successful Breastfeeding. In addition, this global program includes the International Code of Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes. To illustrate, before a hospital can receive this prestigious accreditation, it must go through a rigorous and structured designation process. Training nurses in the skills needed to implement these policies has proven most challenging. Nurses should be compelled to examine, challenge and modify long standing policies regarding bottle feeding.

Topics covered include the risks of not breastfeeding and how to counsel families about the benefits of breast milk.
