Lincolnshire services achieve baby friendly accreditation
Health services for pregnant women and new mothers across north and north east Lincolnshire have been awarded the prestigious baby friendly accreditation from Unicef.
The maternity and neonatal services at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust have received stage three accreditation. Trust staff were commended for the very high standards of care pregnant women and new mothers receive, for taking every opportunity to initiate a discussion around feeding and for the "effective support" given to breastfeeding mothers.
Jane Goodwin, Infant Feeding Lead for Scunthorpe and Goole Hospitals, says: "We're delighted to have achieved the level three accreditation. It's a reflection of the hard work our staff put in to continuously improve services for our local women."
