The Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) is a national survey of breastfeeding support in facilities that provide labor and delivery care. Each facility receives a Quality score that ranges from 0-100. Myrtue received a score of 85 while nationwide the average score was 62.

The score is calculated from each facility’s support of breastfeeding by timely first chance to breastfeed after delivery, offering skin-to-skin immediately after delivery; trained staff provides a breastfeeding assessment along with other best practices that show to improve breastfeeding success.
