UNICEF Baby Friendly
Lewisham and Greenwich health visiting services have Stage 3 UNICEF Baby Friendly accreditation for breastfeeding. This is a fantastic and very prestigious achievement for the Trust.
The UNICEF Baby Friendly Standards aim to improve the information, support and encouragement provided in order to promote, protect and support breastfeeding and appropriate introduction to solid foods.
This means that your health visitor and health visitor assistant practitioners have received high quality Baby Friendly training to support infant feeding and relationship building. For more information on the UNICEF Baby Friendly initiative please see www.unicef.org.uk/babyfriendly
