High 5
for Mom and Baby

Participating Hospitals

We proudly recognize the commitment to infant and maternal health demonstrated by the following hospitals which are participating in the High 5 for Mom & Baby program.

The High 5 program encourages adoption of five evidence-based maternity care practices that support breastfeeding success.  Participating hospitals receive on-site training for hospital staff and invited community members; educational support for employee advancement toward International Board Certified Lactation Consultant status; technical assistance to assure successful program implementation; resources including sample policies, training videos, patient education materials, and promotional marketing materials; and recognition as a High 5 participant.

Through participation in High 5 for Mom & Baby, 60 Kansas Hospitals and 2 birthing centers have demonstrated their commitment to infant and maternal health by supporting breastfeeding success. Of these, 29 have achieved full High 5 program recognition (listed below in bold with recognition logo), and all 62 have completed the initial High 5 for Mom & Baby Education Class.
