Infant feeding

West Middlesex University Hospital was the first London hospital to be fully accredited with the Baby Friendly award for standards of care. We strive to provide you with all of the most current, evidenced-based information that you need to prepare you for life with your new baby, including feeding. For more information click here.

Breastfeeding classes are recommended for all first time parents to help with the transition to parenthood. This includes understanding the baby's needs, including sleep, getting feeding off to a good start and making informed choices.  You can also download our 'Pregnancy and Life with your Baby' folder.

For mothers with more complicated pregnancies, we have an Infant Feeding Coordinator, Katie Arneil, who is on hand to help discuss your baby's feeding and develop a plan for after the birth.

On the postnatal ward, you can attend our breastfeeding workshop preparing you to going home with your baby.
