Best Fed Beginnings: Improving Breastfeeding Support in U.S. Hospitals

Breastfeeding is one of the most effective preventive health measures for infants and mothers. The National Initiative for Childrens Healthcare Quality (NICHQ), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is leading a nationwide effort in close partnership with Baby-Friendly USA to help hospitals improve maternity care and increase the number of Baby-Friendly hospitals in the United States. 90 hospitals will be selected for a nationwide Learning Collaborative to improve practices to support breastfeeding and achieve Baby-Friendly designation.
