Since March 2003, we have been accredited as a Baby Friendly Hospital by the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI).
Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative is an international project that aims to give every baby the best start in life by creating a healthcare environment where breastfeeding is the norm and practices known to promote the health and well being of all babies and their mothers are followed.
The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative 'Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding' are the global standard by which health services are assessed and accredited. A 'Baby Friendly' health service is one where a mother's informed choice of feeding is supported, respected and encouraged.
North West Private Hospital has proudly held this accreditation since March 2003.
