Local hospital bans the bag for new moms

(Continued)

Ada —

Breast-feeding benefits both mother and baby and is one of several steps OSDH encourages families to take to reduce infant mortality. Others include stopping smoking, getting early prenatal care, carrying baby to full-term, ensuring safe sleep spaces for babies, correctly installing child safety seats, recognizing and getting help for postpartum depression and never shaking a baby.

“Oklahoma hospitals are working to provide quality care to families, and joining the Ban the Bag project is a step that sends a strong message to everyone. We hope more hospitals will join this effort until Oklahoma is a 'bag-free' state,” said Becky Mannel, project leader for the Oklahoma Hospital Breastfeeding Education Project. This project is sponsored by the OSDH under the “Preparing for a Lifetime, It’s Everyone’s Responsibility” initiative to reduce infant deaths in Oklahoma.

For more information about the Oklahoma Hospital Breastfeeding Education or Becoming Baby-Friendly in Oklahoma projects, call Becky Mannel, department of OB/GYN, University of Oklahoma College of Medicine at (405) 271-4350 office or email rebecca-mannel@ouhsc.edu.  To learn about the “Preparing for a Lifetime, It’s Everyone’s Responsibility” initiative to reduce infant deaths in Oklahoma, visit http://iio.health.ok.gov.
