Abstract

There are many documented benefits to breastfeeding not only for infants, but for mothers as well.  The hospital where I’m employed, which had over 6,600 births last year, wanted to improve maternal/infant skin-to-skin contact rates because this has been shown to increase exclusive breastfeeding rates at discharge.  In order to improve both rates, a work group of multidisciplinary healthcare workers was formed.  Initially the work group met monthly and then weekly, to review audits, develop and implement education, and then to evaluate if the interventions were successful.  Involving front-line personnel, such as healthcare providers, primary nurses, perioperative nurses, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA), pediatricians, and baby nurses, was instrumental during the process planning.
