  • Outline



This one- hour course presents a brief overview of breastfeeding management that is evidence-based.   Much of the breastfeeding information clinicians learned in school is outdated and a lot of current practice is based upon old, incorrect information. This program is the first step in standardizing breastfeeding management for a clinical unit. Due to the short length of the program, it is easily presented to nursing and other staff while on the Unit.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss unique benefits of breastfeeding to mother and baby.
  • Discuss the advantages of beginning breastfeeding within the first hour after delivery.
  • Describe optimal care for mother and baby in the early postpartum period.
  • List three indicators that breastfeeding is going well.
