The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) certification awarded by the World Health Organization is a global initiative to recognise hospitals that implement practices to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
Parkway Pantai’s BFHI journey began in June 2018 when it announced plans for all its hospitals in Singapore to attain BFHI certification. Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital was the first private hospital in Singapore to achieve this accreditation shortly in December 2018, with Mount Elizabeth Hospital joining the ranks most recently in August 2019.
Parkway Pantai’s two remaining hospitals in Singapore - Gleneagles and Parkway East Hospitals - are currently working towards attaining baby-friendly status in the coming months.
Breastfeeding has been proven to be beneficial for both mother and child, lending infants the ability to fend off infections, as well as decrease risks of allergies and diabetes in the longer term. It also lowers the chances of osteoporosis, breast and ovarian cancers for the mothers.
Our BFHI journey underscores Parkway Pantai’s strong commitment to the well-being of the mothers and babies at our hospitals, by ensuring optimal nutrition for babies from birth through breastfeeding.
