Breastfeeding When You Go Home

The goal of our program is to support new mothers with the techniques they need to accomplish their own breastfeeding goals.

Our physicians and nurses work diligently to provide education, support and care to mothers and their babies, to begin life on a healthy path.

In 2016, Huntington Hospital was designated as a World Health Organization Baby-Friendly® Hospital.

This accreditation highlights Huntington Hospital’s commitment to ensuring that all mothers and their newborns receive the support needed to achieve breastfeeding success.
