Culture Plan to Support Breastfeeding Physicians and Trainees

The American Academy of Pediatrics published a resource titled "Culture Plan Supporting Breastfeeding Physicians and Trainees." The plan includes information about creating a culture of support for breastfeeding within the medical community and emphasizes support for breastfeeding medical practitioners at all levels of training as a part of medical practitioner wellness. AAP also released Culture Plan Infographics that highlight challenges for breastfeeding physicians and trainees and depict the four phases of creating a culture of breastfeeding support. This Culture Plan is intended to work in tandem with other components of the Physician Education and Training on Breastfeeding Action Plan

Development of the Culture Plan was coordinated by the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee, with authors Jessica Lee from the Center for WorkLife Law and Lauren Hanley from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The USBC-affiliated Physician Education & Training Constellation and Workplace Support Constellation provided input and feedback at all stages of development.
