Breastfeeding Support Tools for the Obstetrics Provider

Objectives

Breastfeeding Support Tools for the Obstetrics Provider was developed by two experts in the field with the goal of educating the ob-gyn clinician how to identify ways to incorporate breastfeeding support into prenatal care.

By the end of the unit, the clinician should be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to implement breastfeeding supportive maternity practices into the hospital and birth setting
  • Provide support to each patient in the days and months after birth
  • Explain how to provide breastfeeding supportive care of common postpartum issues in the lactating woman

Physicians can purchase and download the eModule directly to their laptops or desktop computers and receive CME credit.
