This week is National breastfeeding week. Here at Wye Valley we have worked hard to maintain the high standard of breastfeeding support through the current pandemic. We are here to support parents informed feeding choices. We have been Accredited fully Baby Friendly by UNICEF. This means our training and care in regards to Infant Feeding and promoting close loving relationships between mothers and their babies is of the highest standards. #skintoskin #Buildingahappybaby #Nationalbreastfeedingweek2020 #BFI

    Karly Hodges Very impressed with the help I received in & the days after I had my son! I asked for help & they was going to video call me, the video call wasn’t working so I had a midwife come out to my house the same day to help with different positions which worked for us both! X

    Becky Cole Well apparently there is no service at the moment if you’re child is tongue tied. I don’t believe this is good enough. If your baby is tongue tied like mine was there is no one to do the procedure to rectify it. This is not good enough. As you’re forcing mothers to go straight to the bottle without a chance of being able to breastfeed. Very disappointed by this.

If you're pregnant it's vital that you still attend your antenatal appointments and continue to seek advice from your midwife or maternity team. Some appointments may be telephone or virtual appointments. Don't let #COVID19 put you off attending appointments.
