As we mentioned in our previous post about Scotland’s Breastfeeding Awareness Week 18-22 June, more information about what our school is doing would follow.
On Thursday 21st June, UWS hosted the Lanarkshire Breastfeeding Initiative’s (LBI) celebration of volunteers, community mothers, peer supporters and infant feeding advisors from NHS Lanarkshire, who support women and their families throughout the area.
The LBI also presented UWS with their ‘Breastfeeding Welcome’ award in recognition of our commitment to promote and protect breastfeeding, which Donna McMillan, Secretary to Court and Director of Corporate Support, kindly received on the universities behalf. Additionally, the university, midwifery and health visiting teams look forward to working with the LBI in the future to develop a community hub for the group within our new Lanarkshire Campus.
Some fabulous pictures from the event are included below.
