ABOUT US

This quarterly forum is an invitation and call to action for Los Angeles community-based organizations, hospitals and clinics who are ready and willing to implement The Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative and to establish the Mother-Friendly Nurse Recognition Program at their institution. Based on the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI) developed by the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS), a coalition of leading researchers, maternal-infant health experts, organizations and individuals concerned with the health and well being of mothers and infants, these 10 evidenced-based steps to Mother- and Baby-Friendly Care will be discussed and practical applications will be taught for the labor and delivery nurse. The basis for the MFCI was highlighted in peer-reviewed Journal of Perinatal Education. For more information on The Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS) and the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI), and to a download of the journal, go to: http://motherfriendly.org
