National Breastfeeding in Scotland Week

Dear all,

National Breastfeeding in Scotland Week statement – Final for distribution with signatories

I wanted to share with you an important ‘call to action’ document, developed by Professor Mary Renfrew FRSE, Mother and Infant Research Unit, University of Dundee entitled Changing the conversation – breastfeeding matters to babies, women, families, and society and we must work together to make it possible and easy for women to breastfeed.  This has been launched today as part of the National Breastfeeding in Scotland week which runs from the 19th to 23rd June 2017.

As a member of the midwifery team at UWS and whose programme, alongside our Health Visiting programme, is Unicef Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) accredited, I hope you will find it informative and I’d encourage you to share with colleagues and friends and across social media.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Tom McEwan.
