The Birthing Center

The Birthing Center - Baby Friendly Hospital!

Welcome to the Birthing Center at Greater El Monte Community Hospital. We are a Baby-Friendly Hospital. We follow the Baby-Friendly initiatives to ensure proper bonding for you and your baby. Breastfeeding is highly encouraged so that you and your baby receive all the benefits breastfeeding has to offer.

Delivering at a Baby-Friendly Hospital ensures that moms will be making an educated decision regarding feeding choice and then be supported in that decision. Moms delivering at a Baby-Friendly Hospital feel more confident in caring for their babies and develop a stronger bond with their babies, whether they are breastfeeding or not.

Delivering at a Baby-Friendly Hospital:

• Instills confidence in parents

• Promotes bonding between parents and baby

• Supports research and evidence that offers better outcomes for babies

At GEMCH, we understand the importance of breastfeeding for the health and well-being of the mother and child, and we want the highest quality of life for new and growing families.

Our caregiving team offer breastfeeding moms the information, confidence and skills needed to successfully start and continue breastfeeding their babies.

Breastfeeding is a natural extension after pregnancy and is important for the continued growth and development of the baby. Scientific research shows breastfeeding moms and their babies are protected from several diseases. In fact, the benefits of breastfeeding last a lifetime.
