As a Trust, we're working towards the Baby Friendly Initiative. This award recognises community facilities and services who adopt recognised standards of best practice in the care of mothers and babies. You can find out more about the initiative on the Unicef website.
How we can help
All our Health Visiting, Community Staff Nurse and Community Nursery Nurse Staff have been trained to be able to support women with their breastfeeding.
We also have specific staff in our teams called Breastfeeding Champions who have additional breastfeeding knowledge, skills and expertise. Download our parent's guide to the Community Breastfeeding Policy.
You can also download and read our full infant feeding policy
We work closely with midwives and local breastfeeding organisations to make sure you receive all the information and support you need to successfully breastfeed. Find out what to expect on your breastfeeding journey.
We have lots of advice, information and links for mums-to-be and mums who have had their babies:
We welcome breastfeeding in all our facilities and are working across Hampshire to encourage cafés , restaurants and other public facilities to advertise their Baby Friendly Welcome too.
You can find out more about the Hampshire Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme on their website, and the Eastleigh Borough Council site.
