The Breastfeeding Hub App:
Is a virtual breastfeeding supporter, available 24/7. It provides breastfeeding support information with photos and video clips to help you along the way.
The app signposts to external websites and blogs that offer evidence-based information about breastfeeding/infant feeding. The information is consistent with the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative standards that the majority of maternity units and health visiting teams follow, to ensure you don’t get conflicting confusing advice. This means it is useful for parents and professionals.
Users of the app use the interactive map to review venues and businesses as Breastfeeding Friendly, under four categories; Relax and Breastfeed, Eat and Breastfeed, Shop and Breastfeed and Work and Breastfeed. So if you have found a place you to breastfeed please pin them to the map and write a reivew to help other Mums who are taking those early steps out and about breastfeeding.
An annual sponsorship is available. Where your logo will be displayed within the App, on all emails, letter footers and links will be added to our facebook pages. We cross promote at any events that you make available to share on your social media and there are opportunities for collaborations at events, in blogs and sharing promotional literature.
