UNICEF Infant Feeding room

The University of Northampton has UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative accreditation with the baby-friendly initiative standards and content included in the theory and practice modules. The University of Northampton achieved full Baby Friendly Accreditation with UNICEF UK in 2016 and successfully re-accredited in June 2022.

Although not used for teaching, students who study midwifery with the UON will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding of infant feeding to UNICEF BFI UK standards which will enable them to fully support mothers and their families with infant feeding and relationship building, which is pivotal to neonatal wellbeing. Within the Learning Hub at Waterside Campus, there is a designated infant feeding room which is available to all students, staff and the general public, providing a safe, private and comfortable space for infant feeding, expressing and newborn care.
