New research project by the University Children’s Hospital Basel and the University Hospital of Zurich

With CHF 680,000 in funding, the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF) is paving the way for a new clinical study by the University Children’s Hospital Basel (UKBB) and the University Hospital of Zurich (USZ). The study will investigate whether the mild induction of labour prior to medically indicated caesarean sections improves lactation initiation and leads to better breastfeeding outcomes. It will be conducted at five locations in Switzerland over three years: UKBB, USZ, University Hospital Basel, Cantonal Hospital Baden and Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen.
