about us




NHS Grampian - Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, Dr Grays and all CHPs have achieved UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative accreditation. AMH and Dr Grays were also reaccredited in 2014 and Peterhead Maternity will be reassessed in June 2015.

Unicef Baby Friendly works with health services to improve baby feeding practice, and for new parents this means empowerment and support to make informed choices about how you feed and care for your baby.
