Description from our presenter: “Implementation of the 10 Steps to Breastfeeding Success and Baby-Friendly certification has been proven to increase inpatient breastfeeding rates and continued human milk feeding post-discharge, but racial disparities persist. Ensuring that along with the standard messaging and processes, all women and birthing people receive the same level of care and access to lactation support is necessary to close these gaps. Partnering with grassroots organizations and collaborating with community leaders can create innovative ways to meet the needs of marginalized groups without altering the foundations of Baby-Friendly practices.”
