Proudly Supporting National Breastfeeding Awareness Week
10 May 2009
As a centre of clinical excellence The Portland Hospital proudly supports National Breastfeeding Awareness Week 10th – 16th May.
We recognise the many health benefits breastfeeding brings to both mother and baby. To support mothers in this The Portland Hospital offers advice and support to all its clients, and follows a pro-choice approach to feeding options, as well as following breastfeeding policies in accordance with the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative.
The Portland Hospital offers a lactation midwife on site to advise and support women on any breastfeeding management issues by offering advice appropriate to each client’s personal requirements.
The Portland Hospital is fully committed to supporting all women throughout their pregnancies and the birth of their child, whatever their individual needs whilst fully providing the information needed for every mother to make the informed choice for her and her baby.
