Dear Breastfeeding Advocates,
Please join us on a conference call on Wednesday, January 18,to prepare for the release of the California Hospital Breastfeeding Report on January 26, at the 2nd Annual California Hospital Breastfeeding Summit in Sacramento, Catch the Wave! Cutting Edge Practices to Improve Mother-Baby Outcomes.
The report will include a state report on the status of hospital breastfeeding practices and breastfeeding outcomes, and the county fact sheets. New this year is the inclusion in the report of new information on maternity care practices, and a Statewide Fact Sheet on breastfeeding rates and hospital and maternity care practices.

The report will be posted on the California WIC Association website, on a password-protected webpage. Reporters, and advocates working with reporters, will be provided a passcode to access the report and fact sheets in order to write their story. Dr. Heinig will release the report in the opening plenary of the California Hospital Breastfeeding Summit.

In the phone call we will discuss the report, and review talking points for working with the media and interested parties.
