Excellence in Care with the Ten Steps


A Two-Day workshop

Course Description

This two-day, in-person workshop advances evidence-based infant feeding policies and practices in the hospital or clinic. It also provides the education cornerstone for hospitals who wish to pursue the designation of "Baby-Friendly". This workshop explores the rapidly changing role of all healthcare professionals in caring for pregnant and new families and is designed to help hospitals and communities provide the basics of early breastfeeding care, with a focus on implementing The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.

We recommend an initial face-to-face program for staff. This initial program can then be followed with subsequent in-person education or staff may be trained through our online education program.

Hospitals or clinics may also choose to complement this two-day program with an add-on a day of clinical competencies through our Demonstrating Competency in Breastfeeding Care program and determine your readiness for evaluation with a A Mock Assessment: Preparing for the BFHI Evaluation session.
