Baby-friendly Designation

Roper St. Francis Healthcare is proud to be the first health system in our region to achieve the prestigious Baby-Friendly USA status. Both Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital and Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital now hold this designation. That means that you’ll find:
  • Our hospitals have demonstrated that they have policies and care practices that meet the gold standard for mother/baby care related to breastfeeding
  • Specially trained staff and lactation consultants dedicated to helping new mothers breastfeed
  • Comforting environment where skin-to-skin contact and nursing as soon as newborns are ready is standard
  • A nursery that supports and encourages new parents to keep infants in room with them
