Support for Prenatal Diagnoses and for Breastfeeding Interventions

Monday’s post over at Our Bodies Our Blog was on a recently signed law, the Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act, which is intended to provide better information and support services with regards to pre- and postnatally diagnosed conditions, such as Down Syndrome.

Today, I have a bit about U.S. Preventive Services Task Force’s new recommendation on pre- and postnatal breastfeeding support interventions, based on their recent review of the evidence.
