Breastfeeding welcome here


Rev. Kaye Ronalds accepts a Breastfeeding Welcome Here sticker pack from local ABA trainee breastfeeding counsellor Erin Wilkinson and her daughter Hayley.

 Mothers have identified that feeling comfortable about breastfeeding in public is one of the barriers to continuing to breastfeed. To work towards supporting acceptance of breastfeeding in public the Australian Breastfeeding Association has developed the ‘Breastfeeding Welcome Here’ sticker and kit to improve the community acceptability of breastfeeding in public.

 The Granite Belt Uniting Churches council were keen to have the accreditation and Rev Kaye Ronalds accepted the sticker on behalf of the churches. The venue has the requirements of a welcoming attitude, a smoke-free environment and room to move a pram. 

Any venue, eg a restaurant, indoor play centre, chemist, local government service, shop, etc can be accredited with the Breastfeeding Welcome Here sticker providing the requirements above are met.
