Executive Summary - Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding

This resource identifies ways that families, communities, employers, and health care
professionals can increase support for breastfeeding and improve breastfeeding rates.
The call to Action also documents disparities in breastfeeding practices. The website
