Breastfeeding Advocacy – what is it?

Breastfeeding advocacy is about helping to remove the barriers to breastfeeding that families may experience. This can involve support groups where parents can find information and spend time with other breastfeeding parents; mother-to-mother breastfeeding peer support networks; breastfeeding-friendly early childhood education centers; breastfeeding and family-friendly workplaces; breastfeeding-friendly cafes, libraries, swimming pools, shopping malls – anywhere that mothers, babies and children spend time and have a right to be.
