GIFT Certification for Breastfeeding Support
Call The Warmline 225-924-8239
We believe that breastfeeding and breast milk provide the best nutrition for newborns and infants. For its efforts in protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding, Woman’s has been named GIFT certified (Guided Infant Feeding Techniques) by the Louisiana Maternal and Child Health Coalition and the Louisiana Perinatal Commission.
Our full-time, board-certified lactation consultants encourages breastfeeding and assists new mothers before and after birth through classes, private, in-room visits and a 24/7 “Warmline” to answer any breastfeeding questions. Additionally, Woman’s has individual lactation consultants for mothers for NICU babies who benefit tremendously from breast milks but may need extra help.
The Louisiana Maternal and Child Health Coalition is an organization of members working together to achieve healthy outcomes for women and children. It initiates and supports policy development and implementation through lobbying and advocacy, educates policy leaders, creates and maintains alliances consistent with maternal and child health priorities, serves as a resource center and provides continuing education.
