  • CONF 2017 Catalyzing Change: Building Baby-Friendly Momentum in Vulnerable Communities

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered Recorded On: 07/22/2017

    Promoting and supporting lactation is essential to improve the future health of parents and their children. Racial and ethnic disparities in breastfeeding rates and perinatal care practices unfortunately continue to be major challenges faced by at-risk populations in the United States. This session identifies the special challenges of vulnerable communities and presents strategies implemented by the CHAMPS initiative (Community and Hospitals Advancing Maternity Practices South) in the Deep Southern United States to engage vulnerable communities in overcoming barriers to better support breastfeeding and maternity care practices. For example, the session highlights the importance of community engagement and building relationships with community members rather than imposing your perceived solutions on them. It also discusses how to gain momentum for system level changes by focusing on smaller changes—such as rooming-in, skin to skin at delivery, and exclusive human milk feeding—which resulted in the larger change of hospitals entering the BFHI pathway.

It explores the multiple maternal and infant factors involved in the development of childhood obesity as well as breastfeeding’s role in relationship to these factors. The presentation also discusses the newest systemic meta-analysis review which concludes that breastfeeding does have an effect on prevention but the degree of protection is influenced by the other multiple factors involved in the development of childhood obesity; therefore, breastfeeding promotion is only one part of a multifaceted plan needed to reduce childhood obesity.
