The CDC mPINC Survey
CDC’s national survey of Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) assesses maternity care practices and provides feedback to encourage hospitals to make improvements that better support breastfeeding. About every 2 years, CDC invites all eligible hospitals across the country to complete the mPINC survey. The questions focus on specific parts of maternity care that affect how babies are fed.
How Can mPINC Data Be Used?
Doctors, nurses, and hospital administrators can use mPINC data to celebrate strengths as well as improve care practices and policies to better support their maternity patients. CDC sends a report to every participating hospital showing specific areas of care where changes can be made to support breastfeeding mothers.
State health departments and other partners can use mPINC data to work together with partner agencies, organizations, policy makers, and health professionals to improve evidence-based maternity care practices and policies at hospitals in their state.
