Investigation of Breastfeeding Support in Coventry (Ended)

Breast Feeding App

Would you like to try out a new Breastfeeding App?   The B-Skills App  has been developed to help support breastfeeding especially in the early days. Parents in Coventry are invited to test the app out as part of a research project run by Coventry University. You are invited to participate if you, or your partner, are between 32 weeks antenatal and 6 weeks postnatal, as long as you have access to either an Apple (iOS) or Android smartphone or tablet.

FWT were commissioned by LINk to carry out a research based project investigating the breastfeeding support available in Coventry.

FWT engaged with users across populations and areas in Coventry to capture their views on their breastfeeding support and experiences during pregnancy; in hospital; in the community and at home.


The report captures the findings, breastfeeding trends; user and practitioner views; gaps and issues and recommendations made by LINk.
