We are proud to be reaccredited and recognised as the first Unicef UK Baby Friendly Trust in London, acknowledging our high standards in encouraging and supporting new mums to bond with their babies and make the best personal choice in how to feed their new born baby. For more about the benefits this brings to families, please visit https://www.unicef.org.uk/babyfriendly/support-for-parents/
The Baby Friendly Guardian at the Trust is Chief Nurse, Arlene Wellman. Do you know what a BFI Guardian is? Find out here.
We offer an antenatal infant feeding and responsive parenting group session via zoom for you and your family and informal sessions before your baby arrives so you can talk to a healthcare professional about the amazing health benefits to you and your baby by exclusively breastfeeding so you can make an informed choice of how you are going to feed your baby.
As we were one of the first hospital trusts to achieve this Gold Standard, UNICEF published a case study on the great work the Maternity Department have done and why our practice deserves this prestigious certification, please read the case study by clicking here.
