Checklist for assessment of breastmilk expression
This checklist is designed for use as part of a formal review of hand expressing to ensure mothers are expressing effectively and to address any issues or concerns mothers may have.
New guidance for antenatal and postnatal conversations
We now have available a range of signature sheets and accompanying conversations guidance, designed 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.
Breastfeeding assessment tools
These tools use several common signs to assess whether a baby is breastfeeding well and safely, in the early and later post-natal periods. There is also a breastfeeding checklist for mothers.
