Your venue

What is the cost?

It is free to join our scheme. We'll send you a free pack, including a sticker to display on your door.

You don't need to make any alterations to your venue. The most important thing is that mothers feel comfortable with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They might choose to have some privacy, perhaps in a quieter area, but you are not expected to have a private room. If you do, it should be well signposted and clean, with a comfortable chair and access to water.

What if other customers object?

It is unlikely anyone will object and most mothers are very discreet with the majority of breastfeeding going completely unnoticed.
