Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) Survey
An electronic version of each hospital’s report was sent to the e-mail of the survey recipient in August 2021. If you are unable to locate your hospital’s mPINC report, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and include the hospital name and address. We also invite you to sign up for our CDC-mPINC-UPDATE listserv where we send out periodic updates about CDC’s mPINC survey.
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 hospitals across the country to complete the mPINC survey. The questions focus on specific parts of hospital maternity care that affect how babies are fed.
How Can mPINC Data Be Used?
Doctors, nurses, and hospital administrators can use mPINC data to improve care practices and policies to better support their maternity patients. CDC sends a report to every participating hospital showing specific changes they can make to support breastfeeding mothers.
State health departments and other stakeholders 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.
