Dr Helen McAvoy, Director of Policy at IPH is contributing today at the Winter Scientific Meeting of the Faculty of Public Health Medicine in Dublin. Findings from the recent IPH report – Breastfeeding on the island of Ireland – will be shared and discussed with public health experts from across the island. The IPH presentation will focus on data on breastfeeding patterns, on breastfeeding experiences among mothers as well as new data available on attitudes and beliefs in relation to breastfeeding in the general population. The presentation will begin to explore some of the reasons behind the breastfeeding patterns North and South and across the UK.
