Project Coordinator: Dr Louise Santhanam, GP
The GP Infant Feeding Network (UK), or GPIFN, is an independent professional network established in February 2016 by General Practitioners, with the support of infant feeding and maternity colleagues. Its goal is engaging the primary care team in working towards best practice in infant feeding, enabling GPs to provide evidence-based support for breastfeeding and information so that babies who are not exclusively breastfed can be fed as safely as possible. GPIFN is also raising awareness of the importance of breastfeeding support services to reduce breastfeeding challenges and protect maternal wellbeing. GPIFN operates on Twitter and Facebook and is forming regional branches across the UK through which GPs can meet local colleagues and work on improving local infant feeding support.
