Alderhey Gain Breast Feeding Mayoral Quality Mark

Liverpool has launched a charter mark for shops and businesses that are breast feeding friendly, the ‘Breastfeeding Mayoral Quality Mark’ after councillors recently unanimously approved a motion proposing its introduction.

Cafes restaurants and now Alderhey children’s hospital  have signed up to a 10 point plan which includes:

  • Allow breastfeeding in all public areas
    • Making private areas available for feeding where possible
    • Offering mums a free drink of water or tea/coffee
    • Promoting support services for breastfeeding

Each business will receive a certificate and a badge that they can place in their window or door to let customers know they are breast feeding friendly.

Alderhey Children’s hospital are celebrating this accreditation with a coffee morning on 6th July
