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.
