Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) is an international program of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The Initiative celebrates hospitals and birth centers that have put in place policies and practices to enable parents to make informed choices about how they feed and care for their babies. 

Medela wishes to congratulate the following accounts for their Baby Friendly status.  (Listed by state)
