    UNICEF Award: Ninewells Hospital Maternity Care

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Feb 21, 2012 5:06:56 PM

    Ninewells Hospital in the UK has been awarded the prestigious UNICEF Baby-Friendly Award for the standard of care given to women throughout and after pregnancy. According to NHS Tayside head of midwifery Kay Forsyth,

    ''We decided to join services with UNICEF UK's Baby Friendly Initiative to boost breastfeeding rates and to get better care for all mothers at Ninewells . . . . Breastfeeding protects babies against a wide range of serious illnesses including gastroenteritis and respiratory infections in infancy, as well as allergies and diabetes in childhood. We also know that breastfeeding reduces the mother's risk of some cancers and it is easier, cheaper and simply less hassle than bottle feeding.''

    Jones & Bartlett Learning would like to extend our congratulations to Ninewells for their impressive achievement. Cheers!

Created specifically to support the implementation of the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative™ in the United States, it is an essential course for educating your staff to promote successful breastfeeding.
