Baby-Friendly® USA, Inc. is the U.S. authority for the implementation of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI), a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The initiative encourages and recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. Based on the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, this prestigious international award recognizes birth facilities that offer breastfeeding mothers the information, confidence, and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies.
Dr. Daniel Clarke-Pearson, chair of the department of obstetrics and gynecology stated, “The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative not only provides the best possible care for mothers and infants, but it is a clear demonstration of solid team work between UNC obstetrical providers and nursing personnel.” He added, “The distinction is an attestation that the medical and nursing teams are able to align care plans and work together to provide our patients with the information and support necessary to achieve successful breastfeeding."
