The Lactation Supportive Environments (LSE) project takes an upstream approach to obesity and disease prevention. Since 2010, LSE has been working to increase the number of settings (businesses, school districts, community healthcare centers, and childcare sites) that support lactation accommodations and breastfeeding-friendly environments.
Through technical assistance, which includes capacity building, partnerships, policy implementation, systems enhancements, staff training and environmental change strategies, LSE focuses on reducing barriers to the initiation and continuation of breastfeeding.
The LSE project brought awareness to all staff on the importance of making breastfeeding support a priority. – Christine Toth, Lactation Consultant, Vista Community Clinic
