Evidence shows that specific practices in medical care settings can significantly affect rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration among women. Birth facility policies and practices that create a supportive environment for breastfeeding begin prenatally and continue through discharge. The mPINC survey measures infant feeding related policies and practices, showing facilities their strengths and areas that need improvement. 

The National Breastfeeding Center will guide your facility to improve mPinc scores through practice management and evidence based practice changes that your staff adopt through meaningful interactions with your hospital team leadership and policy change.
