Feed with Confidence Awards 2018
Do you know a cafe, a shop or a friend who’s helped you to breastfeed with confidence? You might know a brilliant midwife who’s helped you on your journey or it might be your local health visitor who is still supporting and encouraging you! We’re looking for the places and the people who make breastfeeding a positive experience. We know they’re out there!
Following the success of last year’s Feed With Confidence Awards we’ve introduced two new categories. There are now three in total:
- Feed With Confidence Venue – a place where mums can breastfeed in comfort, feeling supported and respected. It might be a cafe or a museum, a department store or a pharmacy. It’s a place that goes the extra mile to make breastfeeding possible.
- Feed With Confidence Supporter – a friend or family member who has helped you to overcome your breastfeeding hurdles.
- Feed With Confidence Champion – a healthcare professional who champions the cause and has made you feel breastfeeding is worthwhile.
All nominations will go into a prize draw to win a family friendly mini break which is a short break of two nights for a family of four staying at one of Luxury Family Hotels’ beautiful hotels in the UK such as Fowey Hall in Cornwall, Wooley Grange Hotel on the edge of the Cotswold, The Ickworth Hotel in Suffolk, The New Park Manor in Hampshire, Moonfleet Manor in Dorset and the Pollurian Bay Hotel in Cornwall.
Kellie Bland who set up the Krafty Cow Tearoom in Burnley, our 2017 Feed With Confidence Award winner, sums up the importance of creating a warm and welcoming space for breastfeeding mums: “ It can be daunting for new mums to breastfeed in public so it’s important to feel wanted and welcome. We focus on the things that matter, like comfy chairs a relaxed atmosphere, space to park a buggy and of course delicious food including yummy cakes!!”
If you have a great tearoom in your area or want to recognise a supportive friend, relative or health care professional then enter our Feed With Confidence Awards. Winners receive a specially commissioned Feed With Confidence trophy and you could win a short break.
