Breastfeeding welcome locations
Mothers have the legal right to breastfeed anywhere, in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, but poor facilities and negative responses can sometimes make this difficult.
The aim of the Breastfeeding Welcome Havering scheme is to:
- make it easy for mums to find welcoming and supportive places to breastfeed
- recognise businesses and organisations for promoting and supporting breastfeeding.
You will find the Breastfeeding Welcome Havering logo displayed in the windows of cafés, libraries, children's centres and other public venues around the borough.
