NYC Targets Black Women for Breastfeeding

NYC Targets Black Women for Breastfeeding

Public hospitals in New York City are marketing breastfeeding directly to their patients, a third of whom are African American. The plan is part of a goal to obtain official “Baby Friendly” designations for 11 hospitals.
