Beaumont, Grosse Pointe is the only hospital in Michigan designated as a Baby-Friendly® birth center by Baby-Friendly USA because of its high level of care and education for breast-feeding mothers and their babies.
Baby-Friendly, a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund, is a five-year designation maintained by continuing to practice the “Ten Steps to Successful Breast-feeding for Hospitals.” The steps include following a policy that is routinely communicated, educating expecting mothers about breast-feeding, helping initiate breast-feeding within one hour of birth and teaching women how to maintain lactation. The Ten Steps encourage breastfeeding on demand and “rooming in” – to allow mothers and babies to remain together, as well as referring mothers to breast-feeding support upon discharge. Unless medically indicated, no food, drink (other than breast milk) or artificial nipples are to be given to breast-feeding infants.
Studies have shown that exclusive breast-feeding for the first six months of an infant’s life reduces the risk of infections, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization.
Beaumont Health System’s comprehensive obstetric offerings span the pregnancy and childbirth experience from preconception care to parenting classes, from low-risk to high-risk deliveries.
