New guidance for antenatal and postnatal conversations
These new guidance sheets and key points are designed to be used to support staff who are talking to mothers about feeding and caring for their baby both in pregnancy and in the postnatal period.
Practical skills review forms
Practical skills reviews help to ensure that training is being used properly by staff.
These postnatal checklists for maternity and community settings help ensure mothers have been given the correct information about breastfeeding and the care required. They are also very helpful when it comes to audit.
Breastfeeding assessment form
This form uses several common signs to assess whether a baby is breastfeeding well and safely.
This checklist is a useful aid to ensure you cover all the necessary topics in the antenatal conversation with the pregnant woman.
