Breastfeeding Celebration Week

Breastfeeding Celebration Week

Public Health England is proud to support Breastfeeding Celebration Week from Monday 17th June 2019.

The theme of the week is to promote the benefits of skin to skin contact, both immediately after birth and throughout the early weeks of life. England has one of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the world - 80% of babies are breastfed at birth and only 1% are exclusively breastfed by 6 months.
