Announcement: Breastfeeding Specialist Health Visitor

By Family Nursing & Home Care
Wednesday 19 April 2023

Further to the Government of Jersey’s earlier communication, announcing the appointment of a new Infant Feeding Midwife Specialist, Family Nursing and Home Care would like to confirm that our Breastfeeding Specialist Health Visitor continues to work with parents in Jersey and leads on the Baby Friendly Initiative (UNICEF] across midwifery and health visiting service to ensure all children and parents have the opportunity to “start well” aligned to our ethos to help Islanders start well, live well and age well.

At FNHC, our experts deliver the Healthy Child Programme.  This evidence-based programme is offered to parents of children under school age and focuses, amongst other items, on supporting breastfeeding and healthy baby weight and nutrition.  In 2022, FNHC achieved stage 2 of the UNICEF Baby Friendly accreditation and we are working towards Stage 3 accreditation in 2023.
