Excellent breastfeeding conference!

23rd April 2018

What an amazing day we had at the breastfeeding conference, held on Thursday 19 April 2018 in London!  Lots of great information shared and we’ve received some fab feedback from #breastfeeding2018.  Breastfeeding: a public health priority was joint hosted with the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) and supported by the World’s Breastfeeding Trends Initiative (WBTi).

A huge thank you to all the exceptional speakers – it was a very dynamic day with masses of learning and collaboration.

In addition, Jonathan Ashworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, announced a pledge to introduce an additional mandated health visit at 3-4 months, as part of Labour’s commitment to making Britain’s children the healthiest in the world. See our previous news story on this.
