||Ten Hospital Birth Practices: Minimizing Their Impact on Breastfeeding
In a day when healthcare professionals and hospitals encourage women to breastfeed, a strange paradox exists: Common hospital birth practices that can sabotage breastfeeding are lurking in the labor room corners. Practices such as labor inductions, cesarean deliveries, routine newborn assessments and more are so common these days that they are accepted as “normal.” Then, there are practices that seem harmless enough—like a liberal visitor policy or bathing the baby within a few hours after birth—but these, too, can affect breastfeeding success. Don’t miss this episode where host Marie Biancuzzo relies on her labor/delivery nurse expertise to clue you in about how common birth practices can affect breastfeeding, and what you can do to minimize their impact on your breastfeeding experience.
