High Five for Mom & Baby Program

Kansas High Five for Mom & Baby Program

We’re so proud that the following Kansas clients are being recognized for their wonderful evidence-based work practices!

High Five for Mom & Baby is a Kansas state-wide program that encourages five evidence-based care practices:

  1. Assure immediate and sustained skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby after birth.
  2. Give newborn infants no food or drink other than breast milk unless medically indicated.
  3. Practice “rooming in” to allow mothers and infants to remain together 24 hours a day.
  4. Give no pacifiers or artificial nipples to breastfeeding infants.
  5. Provide mothers options for breastfeeding support in the community upon discharge.
