Mother-Baby-Friendly Initiative

It can be challenging to find the care you desire during pregnancy and postpartum.  There are so many options and so much information available in today's world. We encourage moms to listen carefully to their intuition when communicating with their current care providers or when finding new ones.  If you feel uncertain or uncomfortable, it is important to explore this reaction. Let us help guide you to providiors, information and options avaliable in the Upstate.

Here is a compiled list of local resources that have proven to be Mother-Baby-Friendly.  This list is by no means exhaustive.  With your help more and more providers are taking steps to become more Mother-Baby-Friendly! Click here to find out more about the Mother-Baby-Friendly Initiative.
