Camden Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme

Let’s make Camden a place where every mum feels welcome to feed her baby!

Many new mums in Camden start out breastfeeding but we know that eight out of ten give up earlier than they would like. This is often because they feel anxious or uncomfortable breastfeeding their baby when they are out and about.

The Camden Can Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme has been set up to recognise businesses and organisations that make mums feel welcomed and supported to feed their child whenever they need to. We have also established this scheme to ensure that all employees and volunteers are aware of the Equality Act 2010, which requires them to be aware of their responsibility not to discriminate against mothers who are breastfeeding a child.

Every venue in Camden can help mums to keep breastfeeding for longer by signing up to the Camden Can Breastfeeding Welcome scheme. By signing up mums will know that they will be welcomed and supported in that venue.

If you run a venue that meets the Camden Can Breastfeeding Welcome criteria you can register to become a Camden Can Breastfeeding Welcome venue by registering with the scheme from the 12th of June 2018. If you are a local mum, why not nominate venues where you feel comfortable to breastfeed and we will invite them to register for the scheme
