Our areas of work include hospital policy change, obesity prevention, and American Indian/Alaska Native breastfeeding promotion and support.

Happy Breastfeeding Mom and BabyNationally, The Breastfeeding Center is supporting the growth and development of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI), which promotes optimal maternity care for all women, and increases breastfeeding initiation, duration, and exclusivity.  Anne Merewood, PhD, MPH, IBCLC, Director of The Breastfeeding Center, is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Human Lactation(JHL), the official journal of the International Lactation Consultant Association.
