Sunshine Hospital is committed to promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. The hospital is currently accredited as a Baby Friendly Health Initiative facility and follows the World Health Organization’s "10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding".
Breastfeeding Support Service provides additional support to women who have had difficulties with breastfeeding in the past or experienced breastfeeding challenges while in hospital or after going home. We are also able to make referrals to local organizations and community Breastfeeding Support Services.
The Breastfeeding Support Service is offered to women who have given birth at Sunshine Hospital and is staffed by Lactation Consultants and experienced Midwives. You can discuss your needs with a midwife or phone the Sunshine Hospital Breastfeeding Support Service.
