Annual Becoming Baby-Friendly in Oklahoma Summits


The goal of this summit is to provide experts speakers to discuss subjects related to process to become and remain a Baby-Friendly Designated Hospital. The Baby-Friendly Hospital Designation is an international recognition earned by hospitals who have implemented policies and practices supportive of breastfeeding. Hospitals designated as Baby-Friendly have demonstrated best practice in the care of mothers and newborns & improved breastfeeding rates.
