ECCH's Health Visiting Team provides support and advice for breastfeeding families across the Waveney area.
ECCH was awarded UNICEF Baby Friendly Stage 3 (Full) accreditation in 2013 and re-accredited in May 2017. This is a global UNICEF programme to improve the care provided for all mothers and babies, promote breastfeeding and strengthen mother-baby and family relationships. Only a handful of organisations in the East of England have full accreditation. It is an endorsement of the high quality of advice and care our teams provide.
A network of free Breastfeeding Support Groups operates across the county where pregnant women, new mums and their partners can drop in for help and information - and to meet other parents.
