Mums have the right to breastfeed their babies when they need anywhere at anytime.
Gain recognition for your support of breastfeeding mums and babies.
By becoming a Breastfeeding is Welcome Everywhere venue you will be recognised as a safe family space.
The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA's) Breastfeeding is Welcome Everywhere recognition program provides community support of breastfeeding in public.
The recognition encourages community venues to self-identify as being welcoming of all families including breastfeeding women and babies.
Breastfeeding is Welcome Everywhere venues can be everything from a cafe to a hairdresser, community centre or public library.
Breastfeeding in public is protected under Australian law. Ensure your employees recognise the rights of mothers and babies to breastfeed when and where they need to.
Why do venues want to become recognised as Breastfeeding Friendly?
"I want the mums to know they can feel comfortable always"
"It's important to provide safe, welcoming spaces for mothers in the community. Breast feeding is a basic human right that needs to be encouraged and supported."
"We want to support and encourage breastfeeding in the community."
"We want to encourage and support all feeding mothers to feel safe, secure and included in our spaces."
"We care very much about ensuring our guests feel welcome, safe and comfortable to breastfeed at our park, wherever they choose, and are eager to advertise our support."
