Breastfeeding Policy

Tavyside Health Centre is a breastfeeding friendly Practice. We recognise the health benefits behind breastfeeding and the studies that support it. It is widely known that breastfeeding is the healthiest way for a women to feed her child.

Breastfeeding is acceptable in all public areas of our premises and mothers will not be asked to move or stop breastfeeding. All staff support and are welcoming of mothers who breastfeed and should the mother wish to feed her child in private, the staff will do their utmost to accommodate this.
