Summary

A program has been created to provide this specialized preterm infant/mother outpatient lactation support. Titled "Promoting Lactation Education, Access and Support Efforts for Preterm Infants" (PLEASE for preterm infants), it includes (1) equipment availability and (2) pediatric clinic-based lactation counseling support. To determine the effectiveness and implementation of this program in a real-world environment requires evaluation in a racially, socioeconomically, and geographically diverse population. The eight-county coastal area of SC provides that diversity. Through the SC Pediatric Practice Research Network (SCPPRN), the effectiveness of the program will be studied through 14 pediatric care clinics
