Best Fed Beginnings


Best Fed Beginnings

Erlanger Baroness Campus has been selected to participate in Best Fed Beginnings, a first-of-its-kind national effort to significantly improve breastfeeding rates in regions where rates are currently at their lowest.

The program seeks to reverse trends by dramatically increasing the number of hospitals in the United States that implement a proven model for maternity services and better support a new mother’s choice to breastfeed.

The National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare Quality is leading the effort through a cooperative funding agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and will be working closely with Baby-Friendly USA, Inc.

Erlanger Baroness Campus and Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tenn., are the only two hospitals selected from Tennessee to participate in the Best Fed Beginnings movement.

Eighty-eight other hospitals in the United States are also participating in this initiative. The facilities are using proven quality improvement methods to transform their maternity care services in pursuit of “Baby-Friendly” designation. This designation verifies that a hospital has comprehensively implemented the American Academy of Pediatrics’ “Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.”
