Currently, there are only 16 places in the city where mothers can breastfeed. Eindhoven municipality wants to increase that.

Both mothers and professionals see that for many women it is a barrier to breastfeeding in public. There would be medical, social, and personal reasons behind this. The Nutrition Center also recognizes this development, which started the ‘breastfeeding-friendly municipality’ quality mark.

The city council says in a council letter that Eindhoven municipality wants to get that quality mark. To do so, the municipality must have one breastfeeding-friendly location for every 50 newborn babies. Eindhoven therefore needs 45 such locations. Currently, there are only 16.

In addition, the hallmark is a way to start the conversation about breastfeeding and make it more normal. Currently, breastfeeding locations can mainly be found in community centres and consultancies.
