Claremore Indian Hospital’s maternity care honored

CLAREMORE —

The Oklahoma State Department of Health says Claremore Indian Hospital has been designated a “Baby Friendly” hospital for its maternity care.
It’s the first hospital in the state to receive the designation from the Baby Friendly Health Initiative, which is a global initiative from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund.
“We appreciate Claremore Indian Hospital’s vigorous efforts to promote maternal and infant health as part of Oklahoma’s efforts to reduce infant mortality,” said OSDH State Health Commissioner Dr. Terry Cline. “Oklahoma has an opportunity to be a leader in promoting the best care for babies and families as we provide support for delivering hospitals in achieving the Baby-Friendly designation.”
Only seven percent of U.S. babies are born in Baby-Friendly hospitals. 
Hospitals that are designated as Baby-Friendly have demonstrated best practice in the care of mothers and newborns and improved breastfeeding rates.  
In addition, Baby-Friendly hospitals support mother-baby bonding by keeping mothers and babies together, putting babies in skin-to-skin contact right after birth, educating all families on best infant feeding practices, and educating hospital staff on procedures to better support new families. 
Other hospitals in Oklahoma are working to achieve the designation. 
They are: Chickasaw Nation Medical Center in Ada, Comanche County Memorial Hospital in Lawton, Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa, INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City, INTEGRIS Health in Edmond, Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City, OU Medical Center in Edmond and St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City.
