Breastfeeding

Maternity is engaged in UNICEF's approach to support breastfeeding

Supporting mothers in their choice to breastfeed has been the objective of HUG Maternity which, since 2000, has held the Unicef label "Baby Friendly Hospital" (FR).

In January 2015, Maternity received its label renewal. This is the result of work and constant updating of knowledge and skills on obstetric care teams who guide mothers in establishing and maintaining lactation. Offering constant cohabitation of the mother and child, quickly putting the baby to the breast, teaching good breastfeeding practices are some of the conditions set by UNICEF.

Each year, the Obstetrics Division gets mobilized for World Breastfeeding Week to honor breastfeeding.
