Baby Friendly Stage 2

Congratulations - Stage 2 Baby Friendly

We are really pleased to announce that the Maternity Unit at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary have passed Baby Friendly Stage 2.  Maternity now join Ashton, Leigh and Wigan Community Healthcare Trust and all the Children’s Centre’s in this achievement. 

Community Health Care, Children Centre’s (who achieved their stage 2 accreditation in March) and the Midwifery Unit will now go on to Stage 3 (full accreditation) this time next year when they will have to prove they are providing best breastfeeding management to mothers, babies families.

The assessors were extremely impressed with the breastfeeding knowledge held by all our staff, the words were “outstanding” for all and this really reflects the quality of care that our mothers and their baby’s receive.

I wish to express my thanks to all the staff, in particular members of the Breastfeeding Team who have worked extremely hard and achieved this fantastic result. 

Alison Healey, Breastfeeding Co-ordinator/Commissioning Lead
