Job information:
With this project, we aim to increase awareness of the benefits of breastmilk and breastfeeding to the wider Stirling community and support local mothers and parents regardless of how they choose to feed their infant. This includes supporting breastfeeding, how to prepare infant formula safely, responsive bottle feeding and how to prepare and introduce appropriate first infant foods. We will target our support to areas of high deprivation where we know breastfeeding initiation and maintenance is low. 

Supporting more families in Stirling to see breastfeeding as an option for them and increasing access to support to enable them to reach their feeding goals will contribute to reducing health and wellbeing inequalities for babies and children.
