Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare professionals and hospitals can improve the health and well being of our Lake County children by supporting breastfeeding. You can support breastfeeding by making your hospitals and clinics "Baby-friendly". Healthcare professionals can help by:

  • Discuss Breastfeeding with women during their pregnancy and provide anticipatory guidance
  • Provide encouragement and support during the post-partum period
  • Link women to their hospital lactation consultant or local WIC agency for breastfeeding support. Download WIC referral form
