Breastfeeding

Improving the physical and emotional well being of childbearing families and their infants is a primary goal of the State Perinatal Program (SPP). Breastfeeding with its many known health benefits for infants, children, and mothers, is a key strategy to accomplish this goal. Breastfeeding is a natural and beneficial source of nutrition and provides the healthiest start for an infant. In addition to the nutritional benefits, breastfeeding promotes a unique and emotional connection between mother and baby and helps reduce illness and the risk of SIDS.
