Engage Healthcare Providers/OBGYNs to Inform Women of Rights

As local 501(c)3 our aim is to engage providers in educating women on their rights whether active/or passive via information/posters in the lobby. Limitations for us is that we are an unpaid group, perhaps DOL can assist in this matter to scale this effort. Prenatal care providers and pediatricians should play a direct role in promoting breastfeeding and informing women of their rights. They have statements in their national associations (i.e. National Pediatric Association BF statement) but they need to take an active local role where they provide care to pregnant women and newborns (i.e. dissemination of resources/DOL posters).
