Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infant should:

Step 10 Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic

Dr. Raj K. Anand: After the mother is discharged from the hospital she needs much support to successfully breastfeed. She may have doubts whether she was getting enough breast milk or not or she may have problems like breast engorgement or sore nipples. So the tenth step recommends that after the mother is discharged from the hospital she is either put in touch with a breastfeeding support group or with someone in the hospital for advice as and when required.

Establishment of mothers' support group is encouraged and mothers are provided help for breastfeeding problems to succeed in breastfeeding. If mothers' support group does not exist access to help by an expert is provided to overcome breastfeeding problems

"Follow the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding for a healthy and happy mother and child"

WHO and UNICEF have updated the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) materials with points which should be taken into consideration while implementing these steps in relation to feeding recommendations for children of HIV-infected mothers and for settings with high HIV prevalence. Alternative session plans and materials have been included.

Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should: Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic. Mothers breastfeeding should be explored for their plans for infant feeding after discharge. They should also be able to describe one thing that has been recommended to ensure that they will be linked to a breastfeeding support group (if adequate support is not available in their own families) or report that the hospital will provide follow-up support on breastfeeding if needed. The nursing officer in charge of the maternity ward should be aware of any breastfeeding support groups in the local area and, if there are any, describe a way mothers are referred to them.
