It is an important question facing our nation.
Childhood obesity and diabetes are on the rise, yet the rates of exclusive breastfeeding at 6 months in the USA hover at only 16%.
Both the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend All babies should be fed breastmilk, and only breast milk, for the first six months of life! Continued breastfeeding along with the introduction of whole-foods is what is best for babies after 6 months.
At Daisy C.H.A.I.N. Creating Healthy Alliances In New-Mothering we believe mothers want to provide their babies with the very best nutrition. We acknowledge that there are significant barriers to successfully achieving personal goals and the research and evidence based goal of exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months. These barriers are faced by new-mothers each day. Enabling All women to access care at no personal cost from qualified professionals in their own community is a solid foundation for supporting new-mothers to overcome the barriers they will encounter, thus enabling them to mother at their best.
Our organization is committed to shifting the current dialogue prevalent in our communities during the postpartum period and revolutionizing the type of care all new-mothers and their families are able to access.
Each and every program offered by Daisy C.H.A.I.N. Creating Healthy Alliances In New-Mothering is proven through research, and is evidence-based to IMPROVE outcomes for new-mothers and their families.
