The Bay of Plenty District Health Board seeks responses from providers who could suitably establish an Integrated Breastfeeding Support Service in the Bay of Plenty. This service will be set up in two stages, commencing in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, and aims to provide responsive and culturally appropriate breastfeeding support with a primary focus on Māori mothers and their babies. This service will have a centralised coordination component and provide a two tier service that is suitable according to the mother, infant and whānau needs. This service will assist mothers to overcome barriers to breastfeeding by providing both social and clinical support in the home and community based locations. We are seeking providers that can deliver a kaupapa Māori delivery model, consortium bids are encouraged.
The primary aim of the programme is to improve, promote and support breastfeeding rates for Māori mothers in a way that is responsive to them and their whānau.
