Baby-Friendly USA and The Golden Hour

Adventist Health Lodi Memorial has one of the only labor and delivery centers in the region dedicated to implementing Baby-Friendly USA and The Golden Hour values that focus on the health benefits of breastfeeding and immediate contact between mother and baby.
