Breastfeeding as Part of Obstetric Practice : ACOG Guideline
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists', ACOG s' Expert Work Group and the Committee on Obstetric Practice has developed guidelines for making Breastfeeding as Part of Obstetric Practice. This is because obstetrician-gynecologists are uniquely positioned to enable women to achieve their infant feeding goals.
Breastfeeding should be promoted as a public health priority because its interruption is associated with adverse health outcomes for the woman and her child, including higher maternal risks of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease, and greater infant risks of infectious disease, sudden infant death syndrome, and metabolic diseases.
