Connections between community and clinical sectors improve population health. It may seem obvious to link organizations that share similar breastfeeding goals within the same community, but hospitals, primary care clinicians, public health agencies, and community groups often provide services with little interaction with each other. Community-clinical linkages help to ensure that families have predictable, frequent, equitable, and easy access to skilled lactation providers, as well as other community resources to prevent early discontinuation of breastfeeding.

Considering the breastfeeding socio-ecological model and the role of healthcare providers and maternity care facilities in regards to steps 3 and 10 of the 10 steps to breastfeeding; and healthcare providers in enabling women to start and continue breastfeeding, this webinar will discuss how communities are effectively connecting with birthing facilities and local medical providers to improve continuity of care from the prenatal period until breastfeeding weaning. Participants will also learn from local organizations that are effectively partnering with clinical partners to close the critical gap that many families fall through, pre- and post-discharge.


This final module of the 4-part webinar series will explore the richness and diversity of community-to-community linkages to advance breastfeeding continuity of care. An exploration of the breastfeeding socio-ecological model will serve as a framework for identifying community partners and change agents who could prove influential in establishing social and systemic structures to critically advance breastfeeding goals among populations with disparately low breastfeeding duration rates.
