Breastfeeding: Heritage and Pride Program

The Breastfeeding Heritage and Pride Program seeks to improve breastfeeding initiation and duration rates among low-income women, through training and peer-counseling.

Women from the community who have successfully breastfed are trained to provide education and support to others who are interested in breastfeeding. The program provides a comprehensive model of home, community and hospital-based breastfeeding promotion and support.

The Breastfeeding: Heritage and Pride Program encourages and supports breastfeeding promotion, education and management with both peer counselors and an international board-certified lactation consultant.
