Breastfeeding Welcome Here

The Breastfeeding Welcome Here project is a component of the Taranaki DHB Public Health Unit breastfeeding programme. Breastfeeding Welcome Here aims to increase support for breastfeeding in the community through highlighting breastfeeding friendly places. There are a variety of community settings including cafes, libraries, medical centres and other public places that are BFWH accredited.

BFWH sites must provide:

  • Baby change and hand washing facilities
  • Pushchair access
  • Comfortable seating
  • Clean, safe smokefree environment
  • Comfortable temperature
  • And staff are supportive and welcoming to breastfeeding mothers
