Members of the UM Shore Regional Health Birthing Center team recently traveled to Delaware to attend a conference focused on breastfeeding. Shore Regional Health’s Birthing Center at the UM Shore Medical Center at Easton delivers about 1,000 babies annually, but its services and care for new mothers continue during the days, weeks and even months following delivery. An important priority of the Birthing Center is to educate all new mothers under its care about the benefits and management of breastfeeding so that they have the knowledge and resources needed to make informed decisions about the care of their newborns.
