Website Launch: Baby Friendly
Feb 5, 2019
We’re happy to announce another website launch, this time for Baby Friendly NL, an amazing resource for breastfeeding support and information. The site is useful for healthcare professionals, teachers, communities and municipalities, and most importantly, parents looking to learn about breastfeeding their children.
The Baby-Friendly Council Of NL (Previously Known As The Breastfeeding Coalition Of NL), Established In 1992, Is An Interdisciplinary Committee With Representatives From All Regions In The Province Strongly Committed To Increasing The Initiation And Duration Of Breastfeeding.
The Perinatal Program Newfoundland and Labrador (PPNL) evolved as the lead agency supporting the ongoing work of the Council, of which the Provincial Breastfeeding Consultant is chair, and is supported by the Department of Health and Community Services (DHCS).
The Baby-Friendly Council, in affiliation with the Breastfeeding Committee for Canada, is the designated provincial body to monitor the implementation of the Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) in Newfoundland and Labrador.
