Highland Hospital has been named a Baby-Friendly Hospital by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
Highland is only the third hospital in the Bay Area and the second in the East Bay to receive this honor.
Baby-friendly designation means we support:
Skin-to-skin time for mom and baby immediately after birth
Breastfeeding for all moms and babies
Breastfeeding support for you and your baby.
Our team includes breastfeeding experts to help you learn the best ways to breastfeed your baby. They will give you all the support you need in the hours and days after birth.
We’ll give you hands-on help with breastfeeding while you’re in the Birthing Center.
After you go home, you can call our advice line for help: 510-535-7501
You may be able to borrow a breast pump for home use. Ask a breastfeeding consultant or your midwife.
