Baby-Friendly Hospital


We just love babies. Maybe that’s why French Hospital Medical Center has been designated as a Baby-Friendly hospital, the only one on California’s Central Coast.

Being Baby-Friendly means we’re also only one of 146 hospitals and birth centers in the entire country to earn this recognition. How did we do it? By having board-certified lactation consultants on staff, by placing an emphasis on breastfeeding for new moms, and by protecting, promoting and offering support for all breastfeeding mothers

French Hospital places an emphasis on breastfeeding and we have a 99 percent in-hospital breastfeeding rate, the third highest in all of California.

If you’re looking for a friendly place to have your baby, look to French.
