Upcoming Seminars

Tues Feb 21, 2017  Health & Safety in the Baby-Friendly Hospital Environment

Families, hospitals, and providers have one thing in common: making infant safety a priority.  Balancing safety with changing processes and procedures in a hospital can sometimes be a challenge.  As we work toward a Los Angeles where ALL babies are born in Baby-Friendly designated facilities, we offer this seminar to increase knowledge about keeping babies safe while implementing the Ten Steps to Breastfeeding Success.
