Call on your MP to stand up for breastfeeding

Call to Action campaign

Home > Call on your MP to stand up for breastfeeding

13 November 2017

As the next step in our Call to Action campaign, we’re calling on MPs to commit to protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding both locally and nationally.

On Tuesday 5 December we’ll be holding a drop-in event for MPs, to tell them about the Call to Action and asking them to make a pledge to:

  • Commit to making their workplace breastfeeding friendly
  • Support their local health services to become Baby Friendly
  • Champion the Call to Action campaign in Parliament.

This is where we need your help. Constituents’ voices are so important in raising MPs’ awareness of these issues and the need for action. Please write to your MP encouraging them to attend the event to make the pledge. We’ll be sharing the pledges on social media, and MPs who can’t attend can join in online.

By making this simple pledge, MPs will show that they recognise the importance of breastfeeding to the health and wellbeing of babies and mothers, and are committed to taking action to support it. Contact your MP now.

You’ll be hearing more about the campaign and how you can get involved at our Annual Conference – book your place.
