Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed a baby and we encourage women to breastfeed their babies and aim to support you to achieve this.

Please read our Parents Guide to Breastfeeding.

Homerton hospital is committed to promoting breastfeeding and is working towards achieving Unicef Baby Friendly status. The Baby Friendly Initiative is a global programme of UNICEF and the World Health Organisation.

It works with health services to improve practice so that parents are enabled and supported to make informed choices about how they feed and care for their babies. Find more information from the Unicef Baby Friendly web pages, and about breastfeeding in general.
