Enabling breastfeeding

Lisa Hernan and Cate Gemmill support parents with breastfeeding.

World Breastfeeding Week is 1-7 August 2023.

The theme is ‘Enabling Breastfeeding – making a difference for working parents’.

Our midwifery and Mother and Baby Resource Centre work closely with new parents to support breastfeeding.

For June 2023:

  • 18% of breastfed babies were given formula
  • 86% of term breastfed babies had their last feed pre-discharge exclusively breast

These are great results and the team is always looking at ways to improve breastfeeding rates for the benefit of children and their families.

If you have any concerns about breastfeeding or just need some friendly professional advice, contact our Lactation (Breastfeeding) Clinic
