The Breastfeeding Friendly Award is a citywide scheme, recognising public places that offer a good level of facilities and support for breastfeeding mothers and their families. Even though mums have a legal right to breastfeed in public places, the Award offers reassurance that the venue supports breastfeeding and will make their experience a comfortable one.
A full list of breastfeeding friendly venues can be found on the Breastfeeding in Sheffield website and at the bottom of this page.
There is an active Breastfeeding in Sheffield Facebook page which offers information on local breastfeeding related news & events. The website and Facebook pages give details of how to find local breastfeeding support groups which are run by fully trained Peer Support Workers, usually at local Children's Centres.
Anyone can 'post' questions to the Breastfeeding in Sheffield Facebook page, from their own Facebook page and Breastfeeding in Sheffield can also be contacted by emailing email@example.com
