Breastfeeding Information

A Letter From Your Healthcare Providers at Doylestown Women's Health Center

Dear Expectant Parents,

We would like to share information with you about our support of breastfeeding.  The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology states the following:

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (the College) strongly encourages women to breastfeed and supports each woman’s right to breastfeed.  The College recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life, with continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced through the infant’s first year of life.”

  • We encourage our new mothers to become informed about the many benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby.

  • Attend a breastfeeding class and learn the most up to date breastfeeding practices.

  • Our staff and the staff of Doylestown Hospital VIA Maternity Center will support you in the feeding choice that is right for you and your family.
