Dear BFREE Coalition Members,
Welcome to our October BFREE E-Newsletter! In this issue, we cover a breadth of topics to share our coalition’s progress in spreading the word about breastfeeding.
We celebrate the exciting launch of the Baby Café at Southside Hospital, featuring this achievement in the Success Spotlight section. With the flu season upon us, we also provide tips for expecting and breastfeeding mothers to protect against this disease. Additionally, the Mother’s Perspective section features 2 stories from breastfeeding mothers – one who continues to breastfeed while working and another who benefits from the Wyandanch Baby Café , which was recently soft-launched. We hope these stories will help to further guide your efforts in promoting breastfeeding.
Everyone’s dedication has been impressive. We thank our writers and editors for their tireless work on this E-Newsletter. We also sincerely appreciate the wonderful support and feedback from the members of the BFREE Steering Committee during our recent September 14th meeting. If you have additional feedback on our newsletter or are interested in contributing to future E-Newsletter issues, please email us anytime at BFREE@northwell.edu.
Many thanks for all that you do!
Henry (Hank) Bernstein, DO, MHCM, FAAP
