Trust receives Stage 2 Accreditation from UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative

As part of the assessment process, external assessors from UNICEF questioned staff on the Maternity Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit about their breastfeeding knowledge and the skills that they need to help new mothers to breastfeed successfully.

Recent statistics show that 94% of the 5,500 women who have their baby in our maternity unit every year have skin to skin contact with their baby soon after birth—the highest rate of any NHS maternity unit in London. Skin to skin contact is recognised as a good start to breastfeeding and this is demonstrated by the fact that 95% of women who have their baby at The Hospital start breastfeeding after giving birth — compared with a national average of just 76%.
