What you should know

Understand your rights as a mom

In 2010, the Affordable Care Act was passed and in August of 2012, it went into effect. With the passing of that law, there were many changes to the mandated coverage of breast feeding support services. Health insurance plans must provide breastfeeding support, counseling and equipment for the duration of breastfeeding. These services may be provided before and after birth. This applies to Marketplace plans and all other health insurance plans except for Medicaid & WIC. 

 
 
 

Breast Feeding Benefits

“…infant nutrition should be considered a public health issue and not only a lifestyle choice. The AAP reaffirms its recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for about 6 months, followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced, with continuation of breastfeeding for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant.” 

- Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk, March 2012, Volume 129/Issue 3, From the American Academy of Pediatrics

In addition, breastfeeding releases hormones in your body that promote mothering behaviors. This emotional bond is as vital as the nutritional benefit he receives from you.
