Chadwick launches plan to improve breastfeeding rates
Health Select Committee chair Steve Chadwick, a former midwife, is today launching Breastfeeding: A Guide to Action.
Mrs Chadwick says the guide and plan are designed to improve breastfeeding rates, and focus on the health of future generations of New Zealanders.
“We need to do better for our babies. Breastmilk is the best food available to babies for all sorts of reasons,” she says.
Mrs Chadwick will also present certificates to three birth units that are the first in New Zealand to gain baby friendly hospital status.
Venue: Banquet Hall, Parliament.
Time: 3.30pm, Wednesday, 20 November.
