Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding - Step 10

Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should: Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic. Mothers breastfeeding should be explored for their plans for infant feeding after discharge. They should also be able to describe one thing that has been recommended to ensure that they will be linked to a breastfeeding support group (if adequate support is not available in their own families) or report that the hospital will provide follow-up support on breastfeeding if needed. The nursing officer in charge of the maternity ward should be aware of any breastfeeding support groups in the local area and, if there are any, describe a way mothers are referred to them.
