The Birth and Beyond California (BBC) Project utilizes Quality Improvement (QI) methods and training to implement evidence-based policies and practices that support breastfeeding within the maternity care setting. The BBC Curriculum was developed as a result of collaboration among the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Division and many local organizations and individuals (Word).
Utilizing the Regional Perinatal Programs of California (RPPC), this project provided participating hospitals with ongoing quality improvement (QI) technical assistance, resource development and on-site education and training. The training curriculum was adapted from the successful SOFT Hospital, a project developed by the Perinatal Services Network at Loma Linda University.
