PROTOCOLS

ABM Publishes Protocols to Facilitate Best Practices in Breastfeeding Medicine


These protocols serve only as guidelines for the care of breastfeeding mothers and infants and do not delineate an exclusive course of treatment or serve as standards of medical care. Variations in treatment may be appropriate according to the needs of an individual patient.

Translated protocols that appear here have undergone a rigorous two-way translation to provide complete accuracy. Please be aware that translations that appear elsewhere, such as on other websites, are not 'official' ABM translations and ABM cannot assure their accuracy.

ABM Clinical Protocols are now readily available through the National Guideline Clearinghouse website. Visit www.guideline.gov (make link)
