Lamb Healthcare Center receives Ten Step designation

By JOE GONZALES

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.

“It first started after we received a packet in the mail about the Texas Ten Step Program,” said Doctor Cindy George. “We were already super excited about breastfeeding and supporters of breastfeeding, so we decided to go after it.”
