No matter where a newborn takes his or her first breath, the desire to give that baby the best start in life is universal. The first hours and days after birth are one of the riskiest periods of a child’s life--but getting an early start to breastfeeding offers a powerful line of defense. Take an in depth look at how countries around the world are implementing early initiation, learn the recommendations of the WHO/UNICEF on how to improve early initiation rates worldwide, and gain a deeper understanding of the state of breastfeeding globally. 2 Contact Hours for RNs, CLCs; 2.0L CERPs for IBCLCs. Module includes monograph, test, and evaluation. (Also available in Spanish.) Posttest requires a passing grade of 75%.
