strategies and community resources regarding the effects of substance use disorder on reproductive-aged women, pregnant women, and their infants.

Breast/Chestfeeding Tools:

Continuity of Care toolkit coverThe Continuity of Care in Breastfeeding Support Blueprint

The Blueprint, developed with a public health lens, aims to increase local capacity to implement community-driven approaches to support chest/breastfeeding, centered on the needs of populations disproportionately impacted by structural barriers that lead to low rates of breastfeeding. The goal of this resource is to ensure that chest/breastfeeding support services are continuous, accessible, and coordinated, and that community spaces are consistently supportive of chest/breastfeeding families. This resource is intended for any local-level organization and individual that interacts with pregnant and postpartum families.
