Lamb Healthcare Center receives Ten Step designation

Lamb Healthcare Center was recently designated as a Texas Ten Step Program Provider.

The Texas Ten Step Program website says, the program “provides resources and a framework to help birthing facilities improve breastfeeding outcomes through incremental adoption of evidence-based practices.”

The designation recognizes hospitals that are implementing policies that are aligned with the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and encourages continued progress toward pursuit of Baby-Friendly Hospital designation.
