Breastfeeding Celebration and Awareness Week 2018

England’s National Breastfeeding Celebration Week, run by Public Health England (PHE), will take place 25th – 29th June.

The week will focus on celebrating the benefits of breastfeeding and promoting the role that all healthcare professionals, commissioners and managers have in advising and supporting mothers to take up and continue breastfeeding for at least the first 6 months of their baby’s life.

The week will look at the evidence that exists, showing breastfeeding’s wide and positive impact on a baby’s development, from strengthening immunity and providing nutritional value to emotional bonding and building mental resilience. PHE will be publishing a number of blogs during the week at https://vivbennett.blog.gov.uk/, using the hashtag #CelebrateBreastfeeding.
