Becoming Baby-Friendly in Oklahoma (BBFOK) is a statewide effort to help hospitals improve maternity care and increase the number of Baby-Friendly hospitals in Oklahoma.

If your hospital is one of the first 10 Oklahoma hospitals to register and have staff attend the Summit, you will qualify for the education stipend for the OBRC 15 hour online training!  We will be contacting you with more details. Hospitals participating in BBFOK will be eligible to enroll 8 staff. Oklahoma hospitals that are not participating in BBFOK will be eligible to enroll 4 staff.
