The article reports that the Coalition for Improving Medical Services (CIMS) officially welcomed the inclusion of a section of the "Guide to Breast Feeding Interventions" published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) called "Maternity Care Practices." Certain birth practices can make breast feeding more difficult, including cesarean section, epidural anesthesia and episiotomy. It is noted that the link between childbirth and breastfeeding is a hallmark of CIMS's own Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI).
