Singleton, Neath Port Talbot and Princess of Wales Hospitals are all UNICEF Baby Friendly Accredited Maternity Services.
The Baby Friendly Initiative is a global programme of UNICEF and the World Health Organisation. It works with Health Services to improve practice so that you as parents are able to make informed choices about how they feed and care for babies. The support you will receive is in line with these standards. Find out more at http://www.babyfriendly.org.uk
The Bump to Breastfeeding
DVD is given out during your pregnancy. You can watch it online at http://www.bestbeginnings.org.uk/watch-fbtb
When you have your baby, prolonged skin to skin contact allows your baby to get to know you, keeps baby warm and steadies baby’s heart rate. It will also get breastfeeding off to a good start.
We also have a strong support mechanism to help you with feeding.
On the ward at Singleton and Princess of Wales Hospital there are both midwives and nursery nurses who can assist you with feeding.
Additional information about breastfeeding can be found in the following leaflet.
When you transfer onto community with your baby, there are both Midwives and Maternity Care Assistants who can help support you with breastfeeding.
In Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board we pride ourselves in working with mothers for mothers.
There is an extensive support group system and welcome scheme premise running throughout our community.
