There has been a shift of focus to a more mother-friendly labour and birthing practice, especially how it relates to the establishment of breastfeeding. Unicef continues to support implementing The Baby Friendly Initiative in hospitals and research continues to demonstrate how this positively impacts on the health services and communities to ensure continued breastfeeding support.
