Harrow is a fully reaccredited UNICEF Baby Friendly Community!

So what is a Baby Friendly Community? Well… The UK Baby Friendly Initiative is based on a global accreditation programme of UNICEF and the World Health Organization. It is designed to support breastfeeding and parent infant relationships by working with public services to improve standards of care.

We offer support to all mothers, whether breastfeeding, mixed feeding or formula feeding.
