Promote breastfeeding to give tamariki a healthy start to life
High quality maternity services provide a key foundation for ensuring healthy families and children. The aim is to ensure new mothers choose to breastfeed and then increase confidence in their ability to parent.
To achieve this, the CDHB will invest in a range of initiatives, including peer support and lactation services, training volunteer mothers to provide Mum 4 Mum breastfeeding advice and implement a 'whole of system' approach to maternity services.
