Animating advice

During a week of celebrating breastfeeding in June, Unite-CPHVA, in collaboration with Public Health England, produced a short film with an important message. The animation celebrates breastfeeding and skin-to-skin contact both immediately after birth and throughout the early weeks of life, and has a focus on BAME women. The idea behind the film is to encourage women to breastfeed and remind them about the help and support they can access from health visitors, community nursery nurses and midwives. The message, of course, is still highly relevant for World Breastfeeding Week (1 to 7 August) and well beyond.
