Breastfeeding Co-ordinator

Barbara Spratt

Choosing to breastfeed your baby is a decision many make because it is the natural food for newborns and its benefits for both mother and baby are many. For some mothers breastfeeding is natural and easy to do but for others breastfeeding is a learned skill for both mother and baby. It takes time and patience to perfect.

My role involves training staff in breastfeeding support as well as helping those women and babies experiencing more complex breastfeeding problems. In addition to this I am the service lead for maintaining the high standards necessary to retain UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) accreditation.
