Program Description

This 16-hour workshop provides the evidence, knowledge and skills participants need to confidently support, establish and protect both early mother-infant attachment and breastfeeding in the hospital setting.  It will highlight the personal tools necessary to enhance early parent-infant attachment and help families to listen to and understand the language of the newborn.  Emphasis will be on honoring the mother’s beliefs and choices of infant feeding.

This workshop was adapted from California Department of Public Health’s Birth and Beyond California Learner Workshop and updated to meet the staff training objectives required by Baby-Friendly USA™ for hospitals that are on the new 4-D Pathway to Baby-Friendly™ designation.

This workshop is lively and participatory with interactive activities. It is limited to 25 participants.



Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:

¨ Define the relationship between Baby-Friendly practices and exclusive breastfeeding;

¨ Create an environment that supports and enhances the newborn’s natural capabilities;

¨ Demonstrate the skills necessary to organize care to maximize mother and infant skin-to-skin contact and bonding;

¨ Identify the biologic, nutritional and immunologic properties of breastfeeding and the risks of artificial milk; and 

¨ Recognize and discuss solutions to alleviate common barriers to supporting mothers’ choice to exclusively breastfeeding.
