A new website ‘For you and baby’ has been launched to support Derbyshire families through pregnancy and the early years. It contains myths and facts about breastfeeding, smoking whilst you’re pregnant and how to eat well during pregnancy.

The campaign also promotes the 250 plus locations in Derby and Derbyshire that are considered ‘breastfeeding friendly’ and will encourage shops, cafés and other outlets to sign up to become ‘breastfeeding friendly’ places.

Families still feel the stigma of breastfeeding in public and For You and Baby aims to challenge negative perceptions on breastfeeding in a public space.
