The Chicago Area Breastfeeding Coalition is delighted to congratulate all of the staff at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park on achieving what is considered the Gold Standard in the world of breastfeeding----- the international designation of Baby-Friendly Hospital granted by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. This designation requires that hospitals implement the 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.
The staff at Little Company of Mary worked for several years to meet the rigorous standards required to become Baby-Friendly. Little Company of Mary is the third Illinois hospital to achieve this status and the first in the Chicago area.
Currently, 33 hospitals in Illinois, including 15 maternity centers in Chicago, are working toward receiving Baby-Frindly Hospital Status.
