RDNs who are IBCLCs play an integral role in ensuring that World Health Organization's Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding are met and that families meet their breastfeeding goals. This webinar will showcase Baby-Friendly USA’s evidence-based Guidelines and Evaluation Criteria which focus on safety, equity, communication and competence and leads to improved maternity care.
Learn more about how Baby-Friendly designation results in the equitable provision of care, reduces breastfeeding disparities and increases exclusive breastfeeding across all race ethnicities and socioeconomic levels. Speakers will highlight how hospital-based interdisciplinary teams that include RDNs are necessary for successful Baby-Friendly designation. Across community and clinical nutrition settings, RDNs can help ensure that facilities are able to meet the Baby-Friendly designation requirements. Webinar participants will hear from experts and educators how to navigate this rewarding field of nutrition and earn their IBCLC credential, opening the door to a new set of job opportunities.
