Through every stage of pregnancy, a woman’s body provides all the nourishment her developing baby needs. And after she gives birth, a mother’s body continues to provide the perfect nutrition through every stage of infancy – and beyond – through the production of breast milk.
At Capital Health Medical Center - Hopewell, we recognize that breastfeeding provides health benefits for babies that last a lifetime, and that a mother’s health is also enhanced by breastfeeding. But we also recognize that new mothers don’t always get the support they need to successfully breastfeed.
Achieving Baby-Friendly® designation fits perfectly with our goal of educating all pregnant women about the benefits of breastfeeding and offering the support they need to do so with success.
