    • Remember: there is no funding at this time
  • Strategies are presented in rank order by vote, followed by any complementary strategy and activities for each strategy
    • Any activity that is already in progress has been identified as such
strategy 1
Strategy # 1
  • Promote early mother/baby follow-up visits to health plans and healthcare providers in order to identify and respond to potential problems with breastfeeding. (State and Local Government-17 dots)
  • Provide breastfeeding evaluation and counseling throughout pregnancy, within days of delivery and at association recommended appropriate follow-up visits. (Health Care Insurers and Providers-complementary strategy)
activities to support strategy 1
Implement a toolkit for (CPSP/FQHC/Medi-Cal) reimbursement for early newborn/postpartum breastfeeding follow up visits for licensed health care providers and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (In progress).

Investigate incentives to providers for early postpartum visits.

Standardize and promote health care provider talking points (starting with the Healthy Births Care Quality Collaborative) for prenatal and postpartum visits.

Develop a social marketing campaign that includes the importance of an early newborn/postpartum follow-up visit.

Develop and implement a certification system for “Breastfeeding Friendly Medical Certification” that includes an early postpartum visit as one of the criteria, for example Riverside County Department of Public Health.

Identify and address barriers to early newborn/postpartum visits, i.e., cultural practices, lack of transportation, and lack of family support.

Integrate newborn/postpartum breastfeeding services into established healthcare services, for example Santa Barbara County WIC/FQHC.

Promoting adoption of WHO ten steps or CA model policies

Promoting the Medical Home for families

Identify resources in the community and state for referrals for breastfeeding support

Promote and encourage group health education visits and home health visits

Establish warm-line within current systems such as 211 or develop in other areas

Expand follow up calls from facilities to post-partum families

Obtain reimbursement for IBCLC services as well as breastfeeding supplies

Encourage and promote linguistically and culturally appropriate training and materials

Make alternative communication methods reimbursable (phone, email, tele-med)

Utilize existing toolkits for prenatal education for providers

Add HEDEIS measure through NCQA related to number of visits infant should have in first month

Expand CPSP integration into routine pre/post natal visits and ensure breastfeeding education provided by CPSP healthcare providers at postpartum follow-up visits is accurate.
