Scotland's Breastfeeding Celebration and Awareness Week 18-22 June

Scotland’s Breastfeeding Awareness Week will take place 18-22 June, and the focus has been directed by the findings from the Scottish Maternal and Infant Feeding Survey – mainly breastfeeding in public and empowering women around milk supply issues. Scotland will also be celebrating the wonderful achievement of 100% Baby Friendly accreditation in maternity and community services. Find out more about Scotland’s recent infant feeding survey results.

Breastfeeding weeks aim to raise awareness of the health and well-being outcomes of breastfeeding and the importance of supporting mothers to breastfeed for as long as they wish.  Please find below an informative video.

We are proud to have fully UNICEF BFI accredited midwifery and health visiting programmes at UWS and we will be engaging with this event- more information to follow!!!!
