Hi there,

I'm not sure if this has already been posted, but just wanted to let people know:

The Allen Consulting Group has been commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing to develop a National Breastfeeding Strategy for consideration by the Australian Health Ministers' Conference (AHMC).

The questions:

If you would like to participate in this consultation, please send your responses to the following questions to email  nbs@allenconsult.com.au

    * Do you think that support and the promotion of breastfeeding should be provided consistently to all mothers and women across Australia?

    * In your experience, did promotion of breastfeeding while you (or your partner) was pregnant encourage starting and/or continuing breastfeeding? What things seemed to help the most? Why?

    * Do you think that there is enough breastfeeding support provided to new mothers?

    * Have you or your partner ever sought or been referred to a breastfeeding support service or lactation consultant? What sort of service? Did it make a difference in you/your partner's ability to continue breastfeeding?

    * How do you think breastfeeding promotion and / or support could be better provided?

    * Do you think that information such as the rates of breastfeeding (number of babies breastfed as a percentage of the total population of babies of particular ages) and other similar information should be collected on a national level?

Check it out at http://www.allenconsult.com.au/news.php?id=119

They want responses by 14/8/09!
