Home > Training > Baby Friendly Initiative Courses

Baby Friendly courses support health professionals involved in the care of mothers and babies to develop the skills and knowledge required to implement best practice.

2022 online courses

Due to the effects of the ongoing pandemic, courses will be delivered remotely on Microsoft Teams until we can plan otherwise.

To join the course, you will need to have access to Microsoft Teams (download the app and sign up for free with a Microsoft account, or you may have access through work) and you must know how to access the various functions of the platform, including Channels, Breakout Rooms and Chat. Please also bear in mind how you will access the training (e.g. at home or work) and make plans for an appropriate quiet working space.Β  For some courses, there will be e-learning to complete prior to the taught course days.

For the Breastfeeding and Relationship Building, Embedding Baby Friendly Standards in Neonatal Care or Train the Trainer courses or Five-day Training for Maternity and Health Visiting Infant Feeding Leads, please email us at [email protected] to be added to the waiting list. We are currently only offering available training dates to those who have already shown interest on our waiting list, so the dates will not be published here. Please do not complete a booking form until you have been contacted with available dates.
