Breast milk fosters optimal growth and development of a baby's brain, immune system and general physiology.
It is vital in preventing common illnesses, especially diarrhea and infections of the respiratory tract (including pneumonia), ear and urinary tract.
The Prevention Center at MGMC promotes breastfeeding to increase initiation and duration rates in our service area.
We focus on three major areas to promote breastfeeding:
- Mother-Friendly Worksite Initiative
- Social marketing campaign
