The Breastfeeding Network are saddened to hear of the death of Sheila Kitzinger, she was a great supporter of BfN and the rights of parents to have independent information. Her ‘woman centred’ ethos encouraging and supporting mothers to make their own decisions about child birth and infant feeding resonates with BfN’s mother-centred focus.
Sheila achieved so much during her 86 years, and was an enthusiastic supporter of The Breastfeeding Network.
Sheila was one of the first people to congratulate BfN when it was formed in 1997 and spoke at our first annual conference and many of our members remember her fondly. #SheilaKitzinger achieved so much.
