Support as a business or venue
Breastfeeding can be challenging for mothers, and doing it in public can make mothers anxious. In order to help babies reap the many health benefits of breastfeeding, it’s essential that businesses support mothers, and this can be done in many ways. It is also your legal obligation as a business to support a mother’s right to breastfeed in public.
From making it clear that your business or venue is breastfeeding friendly with a sticker like the one below, to training your staff, there’s plenty of actions you can take to support mothers who choose to breastfeed.
To find out more, download our campaign guide for businesses and venues,
or drop us an email with your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org to order ‘self cling 150 x 150mm’ window stickers, A3, A4 or A5 posters – see below. (please indicate quantities of each you require).
Share your breastfeeding stories
Sharing stories can help other mothers feel more confident about breastfeeding out and about, so feel free to add your voice to the campaign and tag us with #FreeToFeed on social media.
