The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative stresses the importance of prenatal lactation education for all patients and the need for support post-delivery for the initiation and maintenance of lactation and the management of common concerns. This six-hour course will prepare the learner to provide prenatal lactation education and equip you with the tools to assist the chest/breastfeeding family on their journey with their new infant. Funding for this training is through the Region 1 Lactation Training Center. The goal of the six North Carolina Lactation Training Centers is to enhance the statewide infrastructure to support breastfeeding. The Regional Lactation Training Centers assure that public health agency staff funded by the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and other health professionals serving the WIC eligible population have routine and ready access to accurate, standardized, evidence-informed lactation management training and continuing education.
