breastfeeding friendly office

Joan Younger Meek, Amy J Hatcher
The landscape of breastfeeding has changed over the past several decades as more women initiate breastfeeding in the postpartum period and more hospitals are designated as Baby-Friendly Hospitals by following the evidence-based Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. The number of births in such facilities has increased more than sixfold over the past decade. With more women breastfeeding and stays in the maternity facilities lasting only a few days, the vast majority of continued breastfeeding support occurs in the community...

BACKGROUND: Breastfeeding is the gold standard nutrition for infants, and more than three-fourths of US mother-infant couplets initiate breastfeeding at birth. However, breastfeeding rates plummet after hospital discharge, when mother-infant couplets enter primary care. This quality improvement project examined the effect of a primary care intervention on breastfeeding rates from the newborn visit through the 4-month visit. OBJECTIVE: The overall aim of this evidence-based quality improvement project was to increase breastfeeding rates by refining the care provided to a diverse patient population with historically low breastfeeding rates...

INTRODUCTION: State and federal laws have been enacted to protect the mother's right to breastfeed and provide breastmilk to her infant. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide hourly waged nursing mothers a private place other than a bathroom, shielded from view, free from intrusion. Minimum requirement for a lactation room would be providing a private space other than a bathroom. Workplace lactation accommodation laws are in place in 24 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia...

METHODS: A descriptive analysis was performed on pre-travel visits between July 2010 and August 2012 at the Travel Clinic of the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, University of Zurich, Switzerland...

Abstract The importance of breastmilk as a primary preventative intervention is widely known and understood by most healthcare providers. The actions or non-actions that heathcare providers take toward promoting and supporting breastfeeding families make a difference in the success and duration of breastfeeding. Recognizing this relationship, the World Health Organization developed the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes (the Code), which defines best practices in breastfeeding promotion, including physicians' offices...

Increasing breastfeeding rates is an important public health initiative identified by multiple agencies. METHODS: The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) clinical protocol ("The Breastfeeding-Friendly Physician's Office, Part 1: Optimizing Care for Infants and Children") was used as a template for the provision of breastfeeding services within a pediatric primary care clinic...

BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization (WHO)/UNICEF Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) was developed to support the implementation of the Ten Steps for Successful Breastfeeding. The purpose of this study is to assess trends in the numbers facilities ever-designated "baby-friendly," to consider uptake of the new WHO/UNICEF BFHI materials, and to consider implications for future breastfeeding support. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The national contacts from the 2006-2007 UNICEF BFHI update were recontacted, as were WHO and UNICEF officers worldwide, to ascertain the number of hospitals ever-designated "baby-friendly," presence of a government breastfeeding oversight committee, use of the new BFHI materials and, if yes, use of the new maternity or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) materials...

Based on the pilot study carried out by the Office of the Dean of the Medical University of Ulm on the family-friendliness of the organisation of medical education in Ulm, this paper describes concrete measures that were designed at the university or have been partly implemented already. More flexibility and customization are essential characteristics and prerequisites of a family-friendly medical school as part of university education structures. Flexibility and customization can be achieved by designing lesson plans and study regulations so that both childcare is assured and that in emergencies, help can be quickly offered with a minimum of bureaucracy...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the creation of supportive environments for encouraging mothers to breastfeed their children has emerged as a key health issue for women and children. The provision of lactation rooms and breast pumping breaks have helped mothers to continue breastfeeding after returning to work, but their effectiveness is uncertain. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of worksite breastfeeding-friendly policies and work-related factors on the behaviour of working mothers...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of a self-appraisal questionnaire and a workshop for office staff in promoting the baby-friendly office (BFO). DESIGN: A two-times-three factorial design with a delayed workshop for one of two groups: an early intervention group who attended a workshop for office staff in October 1997 (n = 23) and a late-intervention group who attended in April 1998 (n = 23). Self-appraisals were completed before the workshops by all participants in October 1997, by 37 offices in April 1998, and by 34 offices in October 1998...
