Baby Friendly

Emerson Hospital is pleased to be recognized as a "Baby-Friendly" hospital from Baby-Friendly USA. A baby-friendly hospital is a mommy-friendly hospital! Baby-friendly has always been our mission at Emerson, but we took extra steps as part of the worldwide Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative to implement practices that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding. 

The designation is a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund to recognize hospitals offering an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.
