ILCA is thrilled with the prospect of what lies ahead for this collaboration and the shared impact we may have on breastfeeding in China. We asked SYBPC founder, Yuwen Ren MD, to share some of her insights into the organization and why this agreement is so meaningful.

本协会对这一合作的前景和对中国母乳喂养的影响感到万分激动。我们特此采访SYBPC的创始人任钰雯,请她分享一些关于SYBPC组织的情况,和对于合作意义的见解。

Lactation Matters (LM): Tell us about why Shanghai YUREN Breastfeeding Promotion Center (SYBPC) is so important to human health in China.

LM: 请谈一下为什么上海育人母乳喂养促进中心对中国的人群健康是非常重要的?

Yuwen Ren (YR): SYBPC is the first NGO in China to provide 90 hours of breastfeeding-specific education courses for healthcare providers (HCPs) to become International Board Certified Lactation Consultants® (IBCLC®)s. Past students have come from 19 different provinces and cities in China.

YR: 上海育人母乳喂养促进中心是中国首家NGO对医护人员提供90小时的母乳喂养专项教育,帮助她们成为国际认证哺乳顾问。在过去,我们的学员覆盖了中国19个省。

In China, on average, there are more than 15,000 newborn babies delivered every year in a 3A hospital, and around 10,000 babies per year in a 2A hospital. In 2015, 26 participating students passed their exams and became IBCLCs. They are all HCPs who are working in either a 3A or a 2A hospital. They had, and will continue to have, great impact on promoting breastfeeding in China, including in the big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, etc.

在中国,一家三级甲等医院的年分娩量超过1万5千,二级甲等医院的年分娩量也在1万左右。在2015年,我们有26位学员通过考试成为了国际认证哺乳顾问。她们都是工作在这些三级甲等或二级甲等医院里的医护人员,而且大多数在大城市,比如上海,北京和深圳。她们已经,并且会持续地对中国的母乳喂养促进发挥巨大的影响。

We also trained some of our students to become trainers and helped them to design educational courses in their own hospital or local area. We are now recognized by hospitals across the country and have received numerous invitations for our courses. We’re very confident that our students will cover all 30 provinces and cities in the next three years.

我们还培训了我们的学生成为讲师,帮助她们在自己的医院或地区设计教育课程。我们的培训被全国各地的医院认可,并已收到许多邀请,希望我们到他们医院进行母乳喂养专项培训。我们非常有信心,在未来的三年内,我们的学生将覆盖全国30个省市。

Starting in Summer 2015, we launched a project to establish breastfeeding-friendly communities, which is supported by the local government. In one such community, we have trained 30 local government employees to provide outreach to 500 families. We already have three cities participating in the project.

2015年夏天开始,我们推出了一个建立母乳喂养友好社区的项目,该项目获得当地政府的支持。在这样的一个社区项目里,我们已经培训了30名当地政府工作人员,预计可以为500个家庭提供服务。我们已经有了三个城市参加这个项目。

LM: What challenges do you face in your work?

LM: 你在工作中面临什么样的挑战?

YR: SYBPC is a very young organization. Our staff and volunteers work very hard to achieve our goals. We have a regular training program for them as well. Because we have so many ongoing and planned projects all over China, we need more people to join us.

YR: SYBPC是一个非常年轻的组织。我们的工作人员和志愿者正在非常努力地实现我们的目标。于此同时,我们对他们有一个定期的培训计划。因为我们有很多正在进行和计划进行的全国性项目,我们需要更多的人加入我们。

LM: Why did your organization decide to become an ILCA National—Regional Partner?

LM: 你的组织为什么决定要成为本协会合作伙伴?

YR: ILCA is a well known international organization with 30 years of history, with which we share similar ideology and thoughts regarding breastfeeding promotion. We hope our decision can help both of us to provide more up-to-date information to Chinese people. We believe this two-way bridge will be a win—win collaboration for both ILCA and SYBPC.

YR: ILCA是一个知名的国际组织,具有30多年的历史。同时,与我们在母乳喂养推广方面有着相似的理念和思想。我们希望这个合作的决定能有助于双方向中国提供更多的最新信息。我们相信这种双向的桥梁将是ILCA和SYBPC一个双赢的合作。

We believe, together with ILCA, we can write a whole new chapter in breastfeeding promotion in China, and at a global level as well. We also feel excited that we can share our experiences with other partners. We foresee that we can learn a lot from each other.

我们相信,与ILCA一起,可以翻开母乳喂养在中国和全球推广一个全新的篇章。同时我们也为可以与其他合作伙伴分享经验而感到激动。可以预见,合作伙伴之间可以互相学习很多东西。

LM: What is your vision for breastfeeding support in China?

LM: 什么是你对中国母乳喂养促进的愿景?

Meanwhile, we provide community education and support to expectant mothers and postpartum mothers discharged from the hospitals. Our vision is to create a natural, healthy, and robust environment and culture for breastfeeding in China.
