Breastfeeding and Women’s Health

The UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health promotes public policy that advances women's health

Breastfeeding has many lifelong health benefits for both mothers and children, and is an important strategy in improving the health of Americans and our healthcare system.

During World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) asks everyone to understand the importance of breastfeeding to women and their communities. In support of this, the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health is promoting the value and benefits of breastfeeding and a woman’s right to do so at her workplace for the entire month of August.

Imagine a future in which every doctor who cares for you understands your unique female biology and values your preferences.

Imagine a future in which health care providers work in teams and share information with each other -- and you -- via the internet.

Imagine a brand new state of the art hospital in San Francisco devoted entirely to providing women a lifetime of reproductive health, where a woman can have a baby in a birthing center, receive the latest in breast cancer care, uterine fibroid treatment or incontinence all in a woman-centered environment.

That future is closer than you think thanks to the vision of lifelong women's healthcare advocate and expert Dr. Nancy Milliken. The Women's Specialty Hospital is part of a new $1.6 billion UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay that broke ground in October 2010.
