Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding
US Surgeon General Regina Benjamin has issued a "Call to
Action to Support Breastfeeding", identifying ways that
families, communities, employers and health care professionals can
improve breastfeeding rates and increase support for nursing
mothers. "I believe that we as a nation are beginning to see a
shift in how we think and talk about breastfeeding," said Dr.
Benjamin. "With this 'Call to Action,' I am urging everyone to
help make breastfeeding easier."
