Health Trust Mums Vow

A MIDLAND health trust has pledged to make its surgeries and health centres more babyfriendly as it works towards achieving a Unicef accreditation.

New mums who want to breastfeed their babies will benefit under the scheme by Worcestershire Primary Care Trust.

The Unicef Baby Friendly Initiative aims to inform parents about breastfeeding, which can boost a child's immunity and protect them against chest problems, asthma and ear infections.
