American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) strongly supports breastfeeding and provides resources to help Fellows, other health care professionals caring for women and their infants, hospitals, and employers to support women in choosing to breastfeed their infants.

ACOG has published a Breastfeeding Toolkit for healthcare providers, which includes infographics, codes for common breastfeeding conditions, a physician conversation guide, and resources for breastfeeding education.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Breastfeeding Expert Work Group and Breastfeeding Professional Search Engine are other great tools for nurses, doctors, and physicians.

LiquidGoldConcept hosts a Breastfeeding Medicine Health Professionals map to make it easier for providers and patients to find breastfeeding resources in their community.
