Breastfeeding Friendly Places Scheme

Breastfeeding Friendly Places is an important element of the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative

New mothers in Lancashire tell us that they feel more relaxed visiting public premises that display the “Welcome to Breastfeed here” logo, as it gives out an encouraging and supportive message. It reassures mothers that they need not feel anxious or embarrassed about breastfeeding their baby, helping to reduce a potential barrier to breastfeeding by protecting and advocating a  mother’s legal right to breastfeed in public places (as detailed in the Equality Act 2010)
