Nominate your Breast Friend

Posted on Wednesday 26th October 2016

Has a Health Professional made a positive difference to your experience of breastfeeding? Perhaps a Midwife spent time with you in the early days that helped you get started. Maybe a GP made an extra effort to find the right medication for you when you were breastfeeding, or perhaps a Health Visitor supported you to keep breastfeeding when you returned to work. South Cumbria Breastfeeding Support would like to hear from you! The Breast Friend Award is a new award being launched by South Cumbria Breastfeeding Support.

This award is made to a Health Professional based in South Cumbria who has made a significant positive difference to a mother’s breastfeeding experience.

The award aims to highlight good practice in the area of breastfeeding support by Health Professionals and to raise awareness amongst Health Professionals and parents of the importance of good support for breastfeeding.

Local mums can nominate a Health Professional using a simple form on South Cumbria Breastfeeding Support’s website. Any Health Professional working in South Cumbria can be nominated. This could include, for example, Midwives, Health Visitors, Obstetricians, GPs, Nurses, Paediatricians or Dieticians. Nominations opened on 24th October 2016, and the first award will be announced early in 2017.
