Befriending breastfeeding: a home-based antenatal pilot for South Asian families

In the Iffley/Cowley area of Oxford, there is a high concentration of families from Pakistan and Bangladesh who, despite concerted efforts, have remained hard to reach. This project attempted to redesign the current antenatal breastfeeding information service, and aimed to produce evidence to guide practice to better connect with this group. The project won an award and was published in the journal Community Practitioner. Read the award report here and the journal article abstract here.
