 Health Access and Education Center


Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week - August 1 - 7, 2015

VCHCA proudly supports breastfeeding as the cultural norm in our community by providing education, resources and support to families. Ventura County Medical Center and Santa Paula Hospital are both designated Baby Friendly Institutions. Baby-Friendly Hospitals must adhere to the Ten Steps to receive, and retain, a Baby-Friendly designation. The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding are:

  1. Have a written breastfeeding policy that is routinely communicated to all health care staff.
  2. Train all health care staff in the skills necessary to implement this policy.
  3. Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding.
  4. Help mothers initiate breastfeeding within one hour of birth.
  5. Show mothers how to breastfeed and how to maintain lactation, even if they are separated from their infants.
  6. Give infants no food or drink other than breast-milk, unless medically indicated.
  7. Practice rooming in - allow mothers and infants to remain together 24 hours a day.
  8. Encourage breastfeeding on demand.
  9. Give no pacifiers or artificial nipples to breastfeeding infants.
  10. Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or birth center.

Please join our Breastfeeding Support Groups and join the Ventura County Breast Feeding Coalition/La Leche League for the Live, Love, Latch Event on Saturday, August 1, 2015 in Montalvo Park in Ventura.
