The exclusive human milk for babies (EHM4B) neonatal health initiative will focus on the use of human milk in hospitals for infant nutrition. Tracks have been designed for Newborn Critical Care Centers (NCCC) to focus on supports and barriers to getting mother’s milk for babies under 1500 grams and/or for maternity care centers to focus on supporting mothers choice to provide exclusive breastfeeding for their term infants. The initiative will reduce variations in care and increase the number of infants nourished by mother’s milk.
