5-STAR Hospitals for Breastfeding


“Georgia's 5-STAR Hospital Initiative was developed to recognize those hospitals that have taken steps to promote, protect and support breastfeeding in their hospital. A five star system has been developed to encourage maternity centers to promote and support breastfeeding one step at a time. Georgia’s 5-STAR will award one star for every two steps implemented of the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Baby-Friendly® USA.” - Georgia Department of Health
