Winchester Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme
We are working alongside Lanterns Children's Centre and Hampshire BESS to encourage mums to feel able to breastfeed in Winchester High Street. Retailers in Winchester High Street will be asked to join the Winchester Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme and display the certified logo to indicate that this is a Breastfeeding friendly place.
The two main reasons that mums stop breastfeeding are:
- there isn't enough help once they have left hospital
- and mums feel that they can't breastfeed outside the privacy of their home.
We are committed to making breastfeeding an easier choice for mums who wish to do so.
